Family Resources

Food Pantries:

During week two of Cobb Schools’ partnership with MUST Ministries, the District and non-profit have built a long-term solution to provide students with a 5-day supply of breakfasts and lunches at 8 school locations on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The first day of the meal distributions will be Monday, March 23. 

The school locations selected for the meal distributions include schools with more than 50% Free and Reduced Lunch populations. 

Cobb Schools Food Service staff will make the food as it is provided by the District and MUST volunteers will distribute to students curbside. The meals can only be served to Cobb County students under 18 years of age, and students must be physically present.  

The weekly breakfast and lunch distributions can be sustained through the rest of the 2019-2020 school year or until Cobb Schools re-opens. However, MUST needs volunteers to help by giving food donations and to sign up here to help with food distributions at schools. Please join us as we help our community in need.  

The new school locations will replace sites where food boxes were provided this week. 

Acworth United Methodist Church will be open on Tuesdays from 1 to 5 pm to distribute food to needy families. 

Northwest Christian Church, located in Acworth, has a pantry that will provide food every Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to 12pm.
