Get Help

Prior to the COVID-19 virus, Suthers operated a thrift store six days a week in Chamblee, GA. Funds from the thrift store supported the purchase of food for the pantry. Due to the virus, the Suthers Center thrift shop, emergency assistance and the food pantry closed temporarily in March 2020.

 

The Suthers Center has relocated the Food Pantry and Emergency Assistance to St. Martin in the Fields Episcopal Church in nearby Brookhaven. The thrift store offered by Suthers Center will reopen once an appropriate site is located and health concerns are resolved. For more information on obtaining help, go to the Get Help page. To locate other area food pantries, other organizations that can provide assistance, and other resources, go to the More Help page. For emergency financial assistance, go to Financial Help. For information on COVID-19, information about vaccinations and testing resources, go to the COVID-19 Help page. And for information on food and nutrition along with healthy recipes and other suggestions, go to the Food and Nutrition page. 

Food Pantry and Emergency Assistance

Both the Food Pantry and Emergency Assistance are currently open from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. each Saturday at St. Martin in the Fields Episcopal Church. Check back to this website for any updated information. Emergency Assistance helps with utility bills, finding housing, provides vouchers for clothing and Marta cards and assists people experiencing homelessness. If you are requesting assistance for payment of utilities, gas, or MARTA cards, you must come personally to the church on Saturday Mornings between 8:00 and 10:00, with ID and a bill bearing your address. No requests for assistance are provided by phone or email.  

 

Using a drive-through pickup method in St. Martin's parking lot, the food pantry offers bread, produce, meat, dry goods and some fresh foods to eligible individuals/families in DeKalb County and surrounding areas. The food pantry is a partner of the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB), from which the Suthers food pantry secures most of its food and functions according to the ACFB screening criteria and food safety regulations.
