  • In response to social distancing, we now do curb-side service, meaning no clients come in the pantry. Please stay in your vehicle or wait at our picnic tables (if you don't have a vehicle) to be served.

  • Our staff completes the intake process through the car window or at a safe distance. Once the intake process is completed, we will then bring the household’s food package.

  • The Essential Household Items Program is closed until further notice.

  • Clothing and Household Items are available daily outside the pantry. One person is allowed to look in each bin at a time. Social distancing must be respected.
