Food Pantry is open Monday, Wednesday & Friday 9:30-11:45.  Those who have appointments will be served first, starting at 9:00, so please be patient

If you are sick we ask that you, please stay home for the safety of our neighbors and volunteers  .

You will be checked in at the front door and given a number.

You MUST bring proof of address EVERY time you visit the food pantry:  Either a current piece of mail or current utility bill (gas bill, electric bill, water bill).

You may visit us once every 14 days as long as you are not going to another food pantry.

As the new year begins, we need to update our records. This requires the need for you to bring proof of yourself and everyone who lives with you.  We will only be able to serve the number of people you prove in your household. If you could please bring one of the following on your FIRST visit:  Driver’s license or picture ID, Social Security Card, Birth Certificate, School report card, Medicaid Card or Shot records

We still encourage you to call ahead your order from 9:00-11:30 on food pantry days or you can click on the menu tab and either print out the order or write down what you would like and bring to the food pantry.  Please put your name, address, phone number, birthdate and how many adults and how many kids are in your home on your order.

No transportation will be provided to or from the food pantry and we do not offer a delivery service.

We will still be doing pre order phone orders from 12:30-2:00 on Monday, Wednesday & Friday: 

*Monday pre orders can be picked up on Tuesday morning starting at 10:00

*Wednesday pre orders can be picked up on Thursday morning, starting at 10:00

*Friday pre orders can be picked on Monday starting at 9:00. 


Please show respect to our amazing volunteers.  They are here to help you.

We are doing the best we can to better serve you.   We do have someone who speaks Spanish on Mondays and Wednesdays.
