Food Pantry

Shallowford is a food assistance site of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Our church food pantry provides groceries to DeKalb County resident individuals and families, up to four times a year per family. We serve over 400 families and distribute more than 15,000 pounds of food a year.

Need assistance?

Our Food Pantry is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Before you come, give us a call (404-321-1844) to reserve a spot; no client fee or donation is required. Identification cards for all family members are needed at the time of arrival. Shallowford Presbyterian Church is on MARTA routes 33 and 126.
