Rescue Mission Food Pantry

Client Choice Food Pantry

We call it the Client-Choice Food Pantry because the clients are able to be escorted in and take a shopping cart and pick and choose the food of their choice. This dignified manner allows a shopping experience without the cash register ringing at the end of their shopping. By providing free food of their choice, we know all the food they are choosing will be consumed. It is the most effective way of distributing food and minimizes waste.

The Rescue Mission Client-Choice food pantry is here to provide groceries to people requiring assistance in the FORSYTH COUNTY area. The food pantry is open on Tuesdays at 9:00 am and Fridays at 1:00 pm for the first fifteen clients. Clients can return after 60 days.

2017 By-The-Numbers:

  • 133,766 meals were distributed through community partners to feed 7,040 individuals
  • 54,354 Client Choice Food Pantry meals were provided to 2,844 individuals

Client-Choice Food Pantry Required Client Information:

  • Two identification cards, one of which must be a current picture ID.
  • Current utility bill or governmental letter that validates proof of address.
  • Proof of identity for each individual living in the home (ex. social security card).

Under the leadership of Bob Gilgunn, Food Service/Outreach Manager, the Mission has seen countless miracles.

The Client-Choice Food Pantry is located at 710 N. Trade Street in Winston-Salem.
