Our Hope Food Pantry is our one of our community services that is organized and operated by a group of dedicated church members and volunteers. Our Hope Food Pantry works in conjunction with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to provide free groceries to the residents of Newton and Rockdale Counties. You must have a valid government-issued ID proving your current location of residence.
Our Hope Food Pantry is usually open Mondays from 2 pm to 6 pm except on major national holidays.

The Mobile Food Truck brings extra groceries items to our food pantry once per month on a Tuesday. Food distribution for the Mobile Food Truck will be once per month on a Tuesday from 2 pm to 6 pm. The schedule of the Mobile Food Truck is highly subject to change, so please be sure to check our our Calendar of Events to see exactly which Tuesday during the month the Mobile Food Truck will come by.
If you're a first-time food recipient of our food pantry, you can expect to fill out all the necessary registration paperwork before you collect your free groceries. If you visit again, you will only have to sign in. Also, while you sit in the waiting area, members of our prayer ministry team will pray for you as per request and may provide you with free gifts of Bible-based literature.
In order to receive the free groceries, you must be a resident of Newton or Rockdale Counties. A valid, government-issued ID (example: a driver's license) is required.
We cannot tell you exactly what food we will have available, because what we receive is based on the availability of what the local grocery stores have to donate week by week. However, we usually receive a diverse amount of fresh fruits/veggies, non-perishable/canned goods, cereals, grains, pre-packaged snack foods, bottled water, soft drinks, and various frozen foods.
Our Hope Food Pantry provides food completely free of charge.
