Sunday home delivery (Forsyth)
Meals by Grace food support volunteers serve Forsyth County families every Sunday at Midway United Methodist Church from 1 to about 4:00 (depending on delivery duration). Arrive around 12:50 and come to the church gymnasium, next to the field. Enter through the far left of the building. Parking is available throughout the church campus.

Who can volunteer? Who can lead?
  • We have teams for every age! Even little ones can create "blessing cards" that will be included with every delivery box.
  • Kitchen volunteers should be 13 yrs +, unless it is the first Sunday of the month. On "Kids in the Kitchen" day, only kids 12 and under may register for cooking in the kitchen.
  • Groups are also welcome! We ask groups to register in advance so that we can plan for you!
  • If leading a team of happy volunteers sounds like fun, please let us know so we can schedule you for leadership training with our John Maxwell-certified leadership trainer! There is no cost for this training.

What will I be doing?
By registering, you will be able to pick your serving team:
  • Breads and desserts
  • Dry/canned goods
  • Kitchen (13 yrs + unless it's Kids in the Kitchen day)
  • Fruit (10 yrs + with permission & supervision)
  • Dish washing (10+)
  • Making laundry detergent & filling bottles
  • Special projects
  • Delivery only (arrive at 2:30) MUST PRE-REGISTER ONLINE

Volunteering at the Pantry
Where and when?
There are many ways to volunteer at our Pantry. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays we sort the donations received and prep for Client Choice Pantry and weekend events. On Wednesdays, the Client Choice Pantry is open for families in need to shop via a points system from 10am to 4pm. Select the event you are interested in for details about the event! We are located 3540 Keith Bridge Rd. in Cumming. We have volunteers from all walks of life. Some are also pantry clients! Due to the nature of the tasks, children as young as middle school-age are welcome to come, if their parents also serve and provide supervision.

What will I be doing?
Our pantry events are fun and very active! Some of the possible tasks:
  • Sorting donations
  • Shopping with our client families (we will train you)
  • Stocking shelves
  • Administrative support
  • Prepping for upcoming events
  • Building break bags
