Community Food Pantry (Sorting and Shelving)

The Mercy Seed Community Food Pantry (MSCFP) changes lives by helping to meet the needs of the church and community by providing food to the community with the love of Christ. MSCFP provides food assistance to low-income individulas. MSCFP works to meet its mission through our weekly food distribution, annual Thanksgiving food giveaway, and mobile food trucks twice a year. 

Help us ensure that those in need of nutritional food in our community have healthy meals by volunteering with our weekly food pantry preperation day every Friday from 10:30am-12:30pm. Volunteers will help unload Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) truck and unpack and sort food to be ready for clients on Saturday and the following Wednesday. Please be advised, even though the MSCFP expects delieveries to be made every Friday morning, some Fridays no delievery will be made based on need of the MSCFP to restock. If you sign up for a Friday in which a delievery will not be made you will be promptly notified no later than the Wednesday prior to the Friday delievery. With your help, we will be one step closer to ending hunger in our community. 

This Food Pantry is an affiliate of the Atlanta Community Food Bank and is posting volunteer opportunities as part of a collaborative partnership between Hands On Atlanta and The Atlanta Community Food Bank. Through this partnership, Hands On Atlanta is providing training and support to nine affiliate food pantries to increase their capacity to recruit, manage and retain volunteers, with the ultimate goal of strengthening services provided to families and individuals at risk of hunger.
