We offers food three days a week as well as limited rent and utility assistance.
Our food pantry is open! We greet individuals at the door and ask for food preferences. We then pack up the groceries and bring them outside. Until the pandemic has officially ended, we cannot invite anyone into the pantry to do their own shopping. See below for regular hours.
4th Thursday Free Food Market – This is an additional opportunity to pick up free food. The market is held in the gym, which is just south of the food pantry. We are open from 1 to 2 PM on the 4th Thursday of each month, except November, when it is the 3rd Thursday due to Thanksgiving. There is no ID or address requirement. All are welcome.
Food donations: Nonperishable foods that are at least one month from their expiration date and fresh produce can be dropped off at the pantry between 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We cannot accept refrigerated or frozen items because we have no way to confirm that they have been continuously stored appropriately.
Financial contributions are greatly appreciated. For information regarding online donations, click here.
