Stephanie May, director of the Newnan Service Center of the Salvation Army, prepares a box of food in the ministry’s pantry. Food and clothing are available to needy Cowetans two days a week – with no appointment. 


Coweta County residents who need food or clothing can now get help – without an appointment – two days a week at the Salvation Army.

Stephanie May, director of the Newnan Service Center of the Salvation Army, said the program was started several weeks ago. “We serve Coweta County residents Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon for food and clothing – no appointment necessary,” she said.

People can get food or clothes at the center, 670 Jefferson St. Those coming for help must bring proof of ID and income, and they must live in Coweta County.

The Salvation Army also provides financial assistance, but those inquiries require an appointment. Anyone seeking financial assistance from the Salvation Army should call 770-251-8181.

The local service center operates a thrift store and, therefore, generally has clothing available onsite for people who need it. The Scouting for Food event annually helps replenish the shelves in the food pantry at the service center.
