A simple meal . . . it’s something that most of us take for granted every day.
Not everyone can afford three simple meals a day. For many in our community, monthly funds simply don’t stretch far enough to allow for proper nutrition.
The Community Food Pantry provides groceries for up to 200 families every month. We provide food, clothing, furniture and household goods to those in crisis situations as well as school supplies and Christmas presents for children of low income families. No one is ever turned away.
The Food Pantry is open the first four Mondays of each month from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. We provide 2-3 days’ worth of groceries to help stretch your food dollars. Pantry Customers may pick up food just once a month. If you cannot visit the food pantry on a Monday, the pantry is also open on the 4th Wednesday each month between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm for your convenience. Sorry, we do not deliver.
To receive groceries, pantry customers must meet income requirements and provide proof of residency. Please bring a photo I.D. and proof of current address such as a rental lease or utility bill. Pantry customers are encouraged to bring their own grocery bags, if possible.
The Pantry is closed on the 5th Monday of the month, if there is one.
When a holiday falls on a Monday, the pantry is closed but will open on Tuesday. In addition, if the local schools are closed due to hazardous weather, the food pantry will also be closed. Boxed/bagged food will be available for pick up in the Thrift Store, Traded Treasures, during the week during regular store hours.
