Food Assistance


As part of our commitment to the community, we’re proud to have extended a helping hand to those in need of food assistance in 2023:

  • 6,430 families were supported, benefiting 19,681 individuals. This count includes 8,325 children (18 and under).
  • 2023 was another record year, representing a 30% increase in the number of families served from 2022, which also means an 81% increase from 2021.
  • As we did in 2022, families were eligible for assistance once a month with no limit to the number of months. This policy continues in 2024.

Our mission remains undeterred: To assist, empower, and unite in the face of adversity. We thank our community and congregations for standing with us in this endeavor.

How to Receive Food Assistance

No referrals are needed, but you do need to bring an ID of some sort showing you are a Muscogee County resident.

Please drive around to the back of St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 2100 Hilton Avenue, and remain in your vehicle. A volunteer will come to you to get your information. And your food will be delivered to you.

WNN had to make the hard decision in October of 2022 to limit the number of families served each day to 25. It’s a first-come, first-serve basis, so please get here early. We will start collecting information around 9:30 a.m.; buggies will go out soon after.

We are open Monday – Friday as well as the 1st Saturday of each month (unless the 1st is on a holiday weekend, which means we’ll be open on the 2nd Saturday).
