The Love Center provides food: To those who are in need in the Winston – Salem and surrounding areas. Each week our primary objective is to distribute nutritious food to our neighbors that need a helping hand setting their table at home. Life happens as many say, and your current status in life does not guarantee that all your needs can be met. Some families have to make difficult decisions where to place the few dollars that they have each month. Sometimes food gets a lower priority over bills. The Love Center is here to help supplement the gap that many families are experiencing when it comes to food.
Three days a week: We open our doors to distribute food to our neighbors. We have a friendly, loving and caring environment. We are staffed by a group of dedicated volunteers committed to making our guests feel at home. The Love Center food pantry wants to ensure that hungry neighbors have a place to turn to for delicious, healthy food.
Food boxes include: Cereal, rice, pasta, juice, bottled water, canned vegetables, canned fruit, tomato sauce, soup, canned/dried beans, canned meat, and peanut butter. We also add fresh meat, vegetables and fruit when they are available.
The Love Center objective is: To provide nutritious and balanced food to those in need on an emergency basis. We are here to help empower our community in a dignified manner.
Funding for The Love Center comes through: Grants, private donations, food drives, fundraising events and the support and generosity of our community.
We are partner agencies of The Second Harvest Food Bank of North Carolina. We have also partnered with local Groceries Stores and restaurants all of us committed to providing for those in need.
The Love Center is currently serving: Over 1,000 people each month in the Greater Winston-Salem area. Last year we were able to lend assistance to 5,240 Families. That’s about 15,562 individuals. We distributed approximately 460,000 pounds of food with a value of over $733,000.
The Love Center is firmly in the fight to eliminate hunger!
