Strengthening Families. Building Communities. Reducing Poverty.

Food & Clothing


Catholic Charities has three food pantries across the Diocese of  Charlotte, in Asheville, Charlotte and Winston-Salem.  Each food pantry provides walk-in assistance on a first-come, first-served basis during normal operating hours.

The pantries operate on a client-choice model, through the principle of providing food with dignity.  Clients select food they would like from a list of items in stock.  Every pantry relies heavily on the work of volunteers to stock and distribute groceries on a weekly basis.

First time clients complete a one-page application with basic demographic and household member information. Due to the overwhelming needs, we can only serve clients once a month.
