Clients may receive food from the Lawrenceville Co-Op once every 30 days. The food provided is enough to feed a family for approximately one week. Available food includes canned goods, as well as bread and other bakery items donated by local grocery stores. Fresh vegetables are sometimes available during summer months, when some churches donate items grown in their own gardens. No frozen foods are provided.
In addition to food, the Co-Op often can provide each client with a small amount of household supplies, such as toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, diapers, and laundry detergent.
CLIENTS: Each time you come to the Co-Op for food, you must bring a current piece of mail to prove that you still live within our service area (Lawrenceville and Dacula). The postmark or date must be within the last 30 days. If you do not receive any mail, you may need to periodically mail something to yourself so that you will have this proof of address.
Some clients may wish to apply for FOOD STAMPS to supplement the food available to their families. The amount of food stamps received by a family is considered in determining eligibility to receive additional food from the Co-Op.
