St. Michael's Food Pantry serves ALL Cherokee County, GA residents in need of food assistance. We are open to serve on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10:00am to 11:45am. An appointment is not necessary, we serve on a first come-first served basis. We are pleased to offer frozen meats, fresh produce & dairy products (from our retail partners Publix and BJ's), personal items (tooth brushes, tooth paste, diapers, shampoo, etc.), a variety of non-perishable foods and bakery items. St. Michael's Food Pantry is a "client choice" food pantry. Our clients come inside our food pantry and shop for the items they will receive. We can also create, and bring to your car, a pre-packed box of food for those folks who may have mobility challenges. St. Michael's Food Pantry is a Partner Agency of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. We are happy to serve each client once per calendar month. We can also provide information on other Cherokee County/greater Atlanta area food pantries, financial aid resources, etc.

Location & Open Times
Gardners may deliver donations directly to our food pantry on Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00am to 11:00am.
St. Michael's Food Pantry is located in the back of St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church campus. There are signs in the church parking lot that direct you to our pantry. For folks who wish to donate non-perishable food items may do so during normal business hours inside our church, there is a large food donation box. The food donation box is located just inside the door of the covered entrance to the church.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
