In Forsyth County, 15.2% of the population (56,484 people), live at or below the federal poverty level. Many residents of Forsyth and Stokes Counties who are in a financial crisis do not have enough food in the home, particularly nutritious food that their family needs. Providing a substantial food order not only allows hunger to be relieved, but also allows money to be used for other household expenses.
Families select items in our Client Choice Food Pantry based upon eating preferences and each food order is designed to provide nutritious meals that will last for a two-week period. Specific foods provided are determined by inventory levels and donations. The average food order consists of at least 60 different food items including milk, eggs, meat, fresh produce, and toiletries, all selected by the shopper.
People requesting food through Crisis Control Ministry must be the Head of Household, have proof of crisis and are asked to provide income verification. The more information you bring, the better we can assist you. For a complete list of information that you should bring to Crisis Control when you come for an interview, please click here.
