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.
