Food for the Hungry

The MSG Foundation, Inc. is alive, well and growing! Having literally outgrown the family style kitchen of McDonald & Son Funeral Home Community room and moving into the commercial grade kitchen of our partner, Otwell Middle School September, 2013. May, 2015, we again found it necessary to modify our program to be more effective and meet the needs of the clients and families we serve.

Our county has grown and with that growth we have become more diverse.  Our traditional food,
preparation of primarily southern cuisine, was no longer meeting the taste buds of our multi- cultural population. We now serve southerners, northerners, Mexican, Guatemalan, Asian, Russian and others. In an effort to empower our clients to feed their families in the flavor of their traditional culture and taste, we have moved from one hot meal to a supplemental grocery system providing about a week's worth of food/household items.  This also allows the family unit to remain in the proper order of children looking to their parents to provide for their needs.   We have also expanded from seven (7) distribution sites to nine (9) distribution sites reaching into every corner of our large county.

We move all our supplies and food donations into the Otwell Middle School Cafeteria turning it into a mini-grocery where boxes are prepared and packaged. Volunteers meet us on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 8:30 a.m. and we have our teams move out by 11:00 a.m. to their sites as others clean and straighten. 

With our awesome team of volunteers, we lend support to the challenged in our community, by offering a hand up not a hand out. Together, we the citizens of Forsyth County form an organization capable and available to assist those individuals who may need assistance from time to time, in day to day living. All of which is possible only through your participation and commitment. Thank you!
