Food Pantry

THE FOOD PANTRY is open every Tuesday from 12pm to 2pm and provides food to more than 50 families. Food donations come from the Capitol Area Food Bank,  members of the Emory Fellowship and private donors. Each Thanksgiving we prepare more than 250 baskets for families in the Brightwood area and beyond.  In 2013 we provided food to over 2,500 families and plan to reach 3,000 in 2014.
