Food Pantry

*******   NOTE  ********

Beginning in July, 2020, our Food Pantry will go back to one day per month on the third Thursday of each month beginning at 8:30AM through 1:00PM. This schedule continues to be a drive through pantry only. Please stay in your vehicle and when you arrive at our pantry building your information will be collected and your food box loaded in your vehicle for you. Thank you for your patience during this time.



God's Willing Vessels operates it's Food Pantry on the third Thursday of each month here at Swannsylvania Baptist Church. Starting at 9:15am we have a time of devotion with distribution of food boxes from 10am to 2pm.

Our process:

  • We serve our patrons on a 1st come 1st served basis.
  • We do not require income verification.
  • When signing up for our Food Pantry, you will be asked your name, address, how many live in your home, and the age group of those living in your home. 
  • In January of each year everyone needs to sign up even if you previously have signed up.

Inclement Weather Policy:

We follow Jefferson County Tennessee School Inclement Weather guidelines. If Jefferson County, TN. schools are closed due to inclement weather on our regular pantry day, we will not have food distribution that day.

We will make every effort to have a distribution on the following Monday if possible.

Please call the church office if you have questions regarding our pantry and the days we operate.
