The Food Pantry Needs Your Help!
A Message From Our Community Outreach Coordinator
As you know, the Charlotte community has been struggling this past year and a half in the wake of the COVID pandemic. People were scared and the food pantry at Wedgewood played a HUGE part in helping people feed their families when they lost their jobs, having nowhere else to turn. Spring of 2020 brought unprecedented numbers of families to our doors and the need remained when we moved our location to the Hearts Beat As One campus in South End.
I'm writing to you with the same urgency we felt last year. The Delta variant is raging in our community and affecting people who have already been vaccinated. Our supplies at the food pantry are low while people continue to come every week to receive food to feed their families. So, I'm asking you to please donate the following items so we can restock our shelves:
cases of water
reusable grocery bags with handles
brown paper grocery bags
dried pasta & tomato sauce
peanut butter & jelly
canned fruit & vegetables
canned tuna & chicken
canned soup & beans
rice & dried beans
cereal, oatmeal, & grits
menstrual hygiene products
shampoo & conditioner
soap & deodorant
toothbrushes & toothpaste
diapers (size 3 and up) & wipes
"Nice to Have" items:
packages meats (hot dogs, ground beef, bacon, chicken, sandwich meat)
salt & pepper (and other seasoning spices)
If you are able, please donate these items and drop them off at 3520 DeWitt Lane, Charlotte, NC anytime on Wednesdays after 10:30am. If you need an alternative time or cannot make the trip, but would still like to donate, please email me at or call (or text) me at 910-489-2943 and I will personally come and pick up your donations.
If you'd like to make a monetary donation to the pantry, you can do one of the following:
1) Please mail your donations to Wedgewood Community Church (PO Box 18912 Charlotte, NC 28218) and write "food pantry" in the "for" line if writing a check.
