COVID-19 Updates

Updated 10/22/2020

Need Help? Our Food Pantry is still open:

  • Monday: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

  • Tuesday: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

  • Wednesday: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

  • Thursday: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

  • Friday: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

  • Saturday: Closed

  • We will do curb-side service, meaning no clients will come in the pantry. Clients will come to the pantry window to be checked in. Once checked in, clients will need to stay in their car or wait at the picnic tables to receive their food package and other services.

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

  • Unfortunately, we had to make the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our clothing and household program. We are focusing on our main service of food and hope to be able to return to these programs in the spring.
