Clients are encouraged to come early, as the food pantry may close before the stated time, depending on availability and wait times.

Clients should bring identification for themselves and anyone else in the household in need of food. Clients will need documentation indicating full name, date of birth and current address. Clients may utilize the food pantry once per calendar month.

Our food pantry usually has frozen meat, fresh produce, non-perishable food and bakery items.

When a client receives food, we also give hygiene items when available. Items could include shampoo, conditioner, soap, razors, tampons, diapers, lotion, etc.
