Who We Serve, How We Help, & FAQs
The Help Center is dedicated to serving those in the Mt. Juliet and West Wilson County communities.
Q. Who is eligible?
A. Clients must reside within West Wilson County (Highway 109 to Davidson County line, Mt. Juliet, Gladeville and portions of Old Hickory.)
Q. What documents are required?
A. For your initial visit, please bring your license or other ID. You will need to provide one form of identification (license, Social Security card, birth certificate, etc.) for each person within your household for whom you are getting food. Also, a current utility bill is required as proof of residency for every visit to the Help Center for groceries or utility assistance.
Q. What is provided?
A. Clients are welcome to make six visits (spaced one month apart) per year to the food pantry, which includes staples of canned goods, frozen foods , perishable items, and toiletries/personal care products. Registered clients are also eligible for emergency utility assistance. We can also provide assistance with finding community aid and information in areas such as homelessness, disabilities, and domestic abuse.
We also offer gently used clothing, bread and bakery items, fresh fruits and vegetables, and other perishable items which are available in our lobby for anyone who needs them. These do not apply toward the six visits per year, nor do they require Proof of Address to be presented.
Q. Where is the Mt. Juliet Help Center located?
A. There is not access directly off of Mt. Juliet Road, even though our address is 3425B North Mt. Juliet Road. If you're coming from Lebanon Road, turn LEFT at the Woodridge Place traffic light just after Mt. Juliet Middle School. If you're coming from the Division Street side of Mt. Juliet Road, turn RIGHT at the Woodridge Place traffic light just after Celebration Lutheran Church, which is on the corner. Immediately after turning onto Woodridge Place, turn RIGHT into the parking lot of Celebration Lutheran Church, then drive all the way to the end to arrive in the Help Center's parking lot.
