Gods Way Food Pantry – 2020 Grant Assessment

Gods Way Food Pantry, a rural church-based food ministry, has served Balsam Grove and surrounding communities for over fifteen years. Over 250,000 lbs of food are distributed yearly, and each month approximately 500 families in Transylvania and Jackson Counties rely on the pantry.  The Food Pantry operates every other Saturday and also provides immediate assistance to families with urgent needs. No one is ever turned away. Homebound clients are served by local volunteers.

Lake Toxaway Charities granted $10,000 in 2020 to support the needs of the residents of of Balsam Grove and area communities. The grant will fund general operating costs as well as ongoing repairs and maintenance. In previous years, the grants have helped establish the kitchen and fellowship/meeting room, available for community use.  It has also provided funds to build loading areas and erect roofing over the kitchen, food pantry, and pick-up areas, including one for handicap access. Gods Way Food Pantry teaches self sustainability in their classes and helps meet critical food needs of our community. By investing in Gods Way Food Pantry we are investing in the future of our communities.
