While we can't completely replace the grocery store, we can lessen the burden. We partner with the Second Harvest Food Bank, Feeding America, we reclaim food from local grocery stores and restaurants, and receive food donations from individuals, churches, and organizations. We also participate in the United Way of Greater High Point's BackPack program to provide additional food to elementary age students.
Service Area: We are located in High Point, NC. We primarily serve the Greater High Point Area including Jamestown, Trinity, Archdale and Thomasville, but anyone who qualifies is welcome to come!
