Learn About Open Arms Community Outreach

Open Arms Community Outreach is a nonprofit food pantry that has been serving Monroe, North Carolina, and other surrounding areas, for more than five years. We are part of the Second Harvest National Food Bank Network™ and Feed America™. Our charitable organization also sponsors the Elite Leaders throughout the school year and the summer.

Although we are focused on feeding children and families with low income, we are ready to help anyone who needs our assistance. You are welcome to get food from us every month, without waiting. Our team of dedicated volunteers also distributes hot meals and food resources to senior communities, local boys and girl clubs, and other sectors of the society.
