How to Shop

The mission of the Mount Olive Pantry is two-part: First, we assist local residents with food support in non-monetary ways. Food is allocated once a month, at a minimum of four-week intervals. No guarantees are made as to availability of food products, due to the voluntary nature of the donations. And second, we demonstrate the gospel in word and deed. Any client interest is solely voluntary.

  • Requirements to shop at the pantry

    • Proof of residency in Mount Olive (Photo ID w/ address) or
      you attend a house of worship in Mount Olive
    • Shopping is permitted once per month per family
    • The amount of items allowed is based on your family size.
    • Items are only available if we have them in stock.
  • We strive to keep the following list of pantry items in stock. On the days the pantry is open we may also bring in fresh produce and/or baked goods. These are based on availability. To stretch your grocery dollars, we suggest you take advantage of these items and buy only the items that we don’t carry.
