StreetWise Thanksgiving Event & Mobile Food Pantry Distribution

StreetWise Thanksgiving Gathering & Mobile Food Pantry!

We are conveniently located off of Hwy 316, next to the Gwinnett County Airport at 1770 Cedars Road, Lawrenceville, GA. 30045

Thank you for Volunteering at StreetWise Georgia and being the helping hands to those in need! Our volunteers are a critical part of what we do.

StreetWise Georgia & The Atlanta Community Food Bank partner every month to provide pre-registered families with approximately 100 lbs. of food.  Registered guests never have to get out of their vehicles. Guests drive through our parking lot, where StreetWise Ambassadors & Volunteers load their cars with boxes of food. Generally, our Mobile Food Pantry is on the second Saturday of every month. However, schedule dates may change to accommodate our other events.

Volunteers can expect to be outside during most of the event. You will help sort food, prepare food boxes, and load boxes into client vehicles. Volunteers arrive by 8:45 A.M., and we will set up for the Mobile Food Pantry, then at 9:30 A.M. begin to serve registered Clients. With everyone pitching in, clean-up is a snap, and Volunteers are done by 1:00 P.M. You must have your own transportation. Volunteers under the age of 18 without transportation should not be dropped off.

Please wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes preferred (no open-toed shoes), no earbuds or headphones for safety reasons, and leave personal belongings in the car or at home. We serve rain or shine, heat or cold, and sometimes in the snow! Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately to be outside.

 COVID-19 protocols: **Please do not come if you are sick, or not feeling well** We are committed to keeping our facilities clean and safe for our Clients and Volunteers.  You will need to decline the volunteer invitation.

For your safety, we ask Volunteers to wear a mask. Try to bring your own, since our supply is limited and not guaranteed.  If you or your group cannot obtain personal masks, please contact us ahead of time to accommodate those needs. Clients will not get out of their car, and there should be no physical contact with them.

Court-ordered only for non-violent crimes.  

*If you are a High School or College Student that needs volunteer hours, we can give you documentation that you volunteered at StreetWise 501(c)(3) Nonprofit.
