Rescue Mission Food Pantry

Our Food Pantries

The WS Rescue Mission has a Mobile Food Pantry at Oaklawn Baptist Church in Winston-Salem that is open on Fridays, at 9:00am. We are excited to partner with Oaklawn in their community where food insecurities are growing. We will be offering food assistance weekly on Friday mornings for anyone that comes for help.

Clients can also come to our Client Choice Food Pantry in Downtown Winston-Salem. We call it the Client-Choice Food Pantry because the clients are able to be escorted in and take a shopping cart and pick and choose the food of their choice. This dignified manner allows a shopping experience without the cash register ringing at the end of their shopping. By providing free food of their choice, we know all the food they are choosing will be consumed. It is the most effective way of distributing food and minimizes waste.
