About Us

The Western Chatham Food Pantry is a 501(c)3 established in 2007. We are an all volunteer pantry whose sole purpose is to help feed the hungry throughout Chatham County. Since opening our doors, qualifying families have been able to receive food from our facility every 14 days, if needed.

Beginning May 22nd, 2023 our pantry opened featuring a more self-service, grocery store like experience. For the first week being open with this change in place (3 days open), the pantry served 102 families representing 323 persons being food assisted. 5,486 pounds of food was distributed to these families. 10 families representing 22 persons visited the pantry for the first time for food assistance.  

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023, we provided food for 2,709 family visits to the pantry. 9,459 individuals were provided by these visits. 157 new families were served representing 518 new individuals. The number of individuals served was 30% higher than the prior fiscal year.

We have been faithfully supported by area churches, businesses, civic organizations, and individuals. Thanks to their generosity, we are able to provide for the need in our community.
