Jones County School Pantry Program

The mission of the School Pantry Program is to help alleviate child hunger in America through the provision of food to children and their families at school. School-based pantries are located on the grounds of a school to provide an easily accessible source of food assistance to low-income students and their families.

School Pantries take place at a consistent location within a school's campus. They have set distribution schedules and offer ongoing food assistance services. School Pantries may have a permanent set up within a school or may operate through a mobile distribution rotation that brings food to a school campus. 

The School Pantry program serves more than 21 million meals to nearly 110,000 children nationwide. Contact your child's Jones County School Counselor for more information on how to receive assistance.


 Mobile Pantry

Jones County, Georgia

 Mobile Pantry for Jones County was formed in the summer of 2009 with the first distribution in Jones County in the month of September 2010.  The need for the Food Distribution and availability of Food was learn from Neil Goodenough, Board member for Middle Georgia Community Food Bank at that time. We discovered that Jones County was an area in need to help people in the community. So Mobile Pantry Jones County was established.  

Neil Goodenough and Sandra Hammack, contacted Central Baptist Association to see if the Association would be interested in working together as a mission project to assist the families in Jones County with food, especially the families with children.  We also learned the food distribution quota set for Jones County was below with Middle Georgia Community Food Bank.  We signed up to be a Mobile Pantry with Middle Georgia Community Food Bank and they furnishes the food for assisting  families in our Jones County area. 

        Sandra Hammack is the director  for Mobile Pantry Jones County and also a member of Middle Georgia Community Food Bank Board of Directors. There is a dedicated  telephone line for anyone to call requesting more information or to request a form to sign up for the Mobile Pantry Distribution for Families with Children. You must provide proof of child or children living in your home.  We also handle the Brown Bags for Seniors and distribute these on the same date as Mobile Pantry distribution.
