The Food Pantry is Church of the Ascension's best known outreach. Sharing Christ’s love by sharing food has always been an active ministry at the parish. Since 2013 we have been part of the Atlanta Community Food Bank, and we serve an average of 120 families a week. We also reach additional families at mobile sites the second and third Saturdays of the month.

Food pantry hours of operation are Tuesday evenings from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm and Wednesday mornings from 9 am -11am while supplies last.

We welcome everyone who wishes to assist with our efforts. If you are interested in helping, please contact Karen Tindall at Karen@karentindall.com to sign up for a shift. All volunteers are welcome - there are no requirements to be church members to volunteer.
