The best way to get food assistance is to visit our Food Finder and enter your zip code. This will pull up a list of Partner Agencies closest to you. We recommend calling the pantry first to check their hours of operation before visiting.
When you visit, you do not need anything beyond a government ID and basic information like your name, county of residence, and the number of people in your household to receive food assistance. Anyone who visits a food pantry for help is eligible to receive food. Some food pantries will ask you to self-declare that your income falls within federal guidelines.
You can also call our front office at 706-736-1199 during business hours (8 am- 12 pm and 1 pm – 5 pm) and our receptionist can help you find a food pantry close to you and give you their hours of operation and contact information.
Also, The Master’s Table in Downtown Augusta serves a hot meal every day Monday-Saturday at 11 am and Sunday at 1 pm. All are welcome. The address is 702 Fenwick St, Augusta, GA 30901.
