we accept food donations of all sizes
GraceWorks can accept non-perishable and perishable food items for the Food Pantry. In addition to food, the GraceWorks Food Pantry gives away personal hygiene and household items. We also give away diapers, which are among the most expensive items in budgets of families with small children. We are in constant need of sizes 4, 5 and 6 diapers. We ask you make these donations Monday through Friday, between 9AM-3PM, at the GraceWorks Donation Center at 104 Southeast Pkwy (follow donation signage).
If you anticipate bringing a large donation, or anything that requires refrigeration, please contact Phil Rutledge at 615-794-9149.

Your food donations go toward our food programs
Qualifying families can receive a shopping cart of perishable and non-perishable food monthly, allowing families to stretch their dollars and spend their resources on other basic needs.
Mobile Pantries provide another source of food to families and individuals facing hunger. GraceWorks uses mobile food pantries to provide access and increase food distribution so nutritious, non-perishable foods as well as perishable foods, such as milk, juice, bread and fresh produce to families in rural and underserved areas.
An important part of holidays is sharing a meal together with loved ones. Thanksgiving boxes are distributed in a special Mobile Food Pantry in November. At Christmas, donors are matched with families to provide Holiday Food Boxes. Items such as ham, turkey, potatoes, milk and eggs, bread and dessert are included.
Over 5000 students in Williamson County qualify for the free/reduced meal programs through the school systems. GraceWorks offers them bags of nutritional food for the weekend.
