Dozens of local churches serve as avenues for the Middle Georgia Food Bank to get food donations to people who need it.

The food pantry opens at Trinity United Methodist Church in Warner Robins every Wednesday to the nearly 70 people who come each week.

Food Director Rachel Blanchett offers comfort along with the food.

In the food pantry, pre-packed bags of groceries are lined up.

“Protein…fruit, we try and hit all of the food groups,” Blanchett said.

Buggies are lined up too, which gives pantry visitors a chance to “shop.”

With a limit on the specialty items, shoppers choose carefully during their visits.
