Gate city Vineyard Church Food Pantry


 The Gate City Grocery Giveaway is an opportunity for our church to extend God’s love to our community in a tangible, personal way. We distribute groceries each Wednesday morning, beginning from 9:30 am – 11:30 am.  


Volunteer to Serve:

We have many who have the heart to serve our community, if that’s you we’d love your help!

Volunteers are needed each Wednesday to help pack and distribute food the families who have signed up for that week.

In addition to the volunteers above we are also looking for donations of food to help meet the needs of this ministry. 


We are looking for the following items …

  • Frozen chicken breasts (3-lb)
  • Frozen ground beef (3-lb)
  • Eggs (dozen)
  • Milk (1 gallon, 2%)
  • Spaghetti pasta (1 lb)
  • Spaghetti sauce (24 oz)
  • Apples (3-lb bag)
  • Sweet potatoes (3-lb bag)

All items can be brought to the church on Tuesdays from 9 am – 1 pm.

Milk/eggs should be put in the food pantry refrigerator in the kitchen, and frozen items should be put in the food pantry freezer in the kitchen. Other items should be put in the black box in the lobby.

 All items except the milk and eggs can also be brought on Wednesday mornings beginning at 9 am (since our milk/eggs for that Wednesday’s giveaway will already have been purchased).


Families in need will pre-register online at GCV volunteers will call each registered family during the week prior to the distribution to offer prayer and support and reserve a timeslot for them to pick up the groceries. We need volunteers to attend Wednesday mornings from 9:00 am – 11:30 am to help with packing and distribution.
