Started in March 2017 and partnering with MANNA and Feeding America, the SMCC Food Pantry is operated by dedicated volunteers, providing food made possible by generous donations from our local churches, community members, and others.
Food distribution takes place on the second Friday of every month from 9:30 to 11:00 am. We endeavor to have meat, milk, eggs, bread, non-perishable foods, seasonal produce, pet food, and other items available.
Food Pantry dates for 2023 are:

You can contact the Food Pantry by phone–828-515-4474–or by email–[email protected]. A volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible.
In case of inclement weather on the 2nd Friday of the month and the Leicester schools are delayed or closed, our distribution will start at 12 noon on the same day.
The work of the Food Pantry is made possible by monetary and in-kind donations, and the commitment of our volunteers. Monetary donations are used to buy food, unless otherwise indicated. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please send it to: Sandy Mush Community Center, 19 School Road, Leicester, NC 28748.
