Where is the Southeast Gwinnett Co-Op Located?
The Southeast Gwinnett Cooperative Ministry is located at 1200 Athens Highway (US 78) in Grayson GA, but it is very close to Snellville.
It is located behind the Community of Grace Church in two trailers. Note that there is not an entrance to the church off of Hwy 78. You must turn next to the Twisted Throttle Motorcycle Shop and that will bring you around to the parking lot of the church. Take a right and the Food Bank is located in 2 mobile homes parked there.
Where Can I Donate Food?
Currently, Snellville United Methodist Church is accepting donations of food and will deliver it to the Southeastern Coop, so please help this worthy cause. Donation drums are located near the Office of Snellville United Methodist Church.
Thanks to the Rotary Club of Gwinnett - Sunrise (formerly Snellville Rotary Club) for organizing a food drive for SE Coop in March 2008.
To Drop Off Donations to the Food Pantry:
Food can be dropped off during normal hours of operation, however the food bank is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-12pm JUST for food item drop off. This allows the staff of the Southeast Co-op to focus on the clients during normal operating hours.
