If you are in need of food and basic household supplies, know there is help! There are many community partners working closely together on our Food Insecurity & Supply Response Team to ensure that no one in Gwinnett goes hungry. As a matter of fact, there are so many food providers and pop-up pantries across Gwinnett right now, it’s impossible for us to give you a complete list of places to go.
Here's how we suggest you connect to the food resources available:
Gwinnett Cares has partnered with this national website and mobile app to help you locate food providers nearest you. Simply go to FoodFinder.us or download the mobile apps (iPhone and Android) and enter your address and follow their lead.
The Co-Ops help Gwinnett families in immediate crisis meet their basic needs (i.e. food, personal care items, clothing, shelter, utilities, etc.). Simply find your zip code on the list below and go to your assigned Co-Op during their operating hours. Due to overwhelming demand right now, services offered by each Co-Op may vary. Please check the website of your Co-Op to confirm what services are currently being offered.
@Gwinnett Cares on Facebook
If you are on Facebook, we encourage you to LIKE our page and watch our posts closely because we share lots of information on pop-up pantries, mobile markets, food box programs, and community kitchens on our feed. Often we have short notice of these and this is the best way to get real-time information about these one-up opportunities.
Many churches and worship centers have launched food programs to help meet the needs of our community. We encourage you to reach out to local places of worship in your neighborhood to see how they might help.
Gwinnett County Public Library
Our library system has been a tremendous food delivery partner providing drive through food pantries at branches across the county. Visit gwinnettpl.org for details on their current dates and locations.
