Food & Resource Centers

Notice: To reach the increased numbers of households in need of assistance, we’re expanding our weekday food pantry hours. Both sites are open Monday – Friday starting Monday, June 1st, and provide a 7-10 day supply of emergency food. Please bring an ID for all household members.

Additional COVID Procedures

Both locations continue to operate using a contactless curbside pickup model with extended hours to address the increased need for food assistance. We continue to ask that clients wear a mask and only access the pantries if they are healthy and free of all illness symptoms.

 

Can clients under quarantine for COVID-19 access food assistance?

Yes. Clients can send a designated person to receive food with the quarantined client’s food pantry card and income information.

What income information is required?

Clients can provide one of the options below:

      1. Proof of income (e.g. pay stubs) – for employed clients
      2. Self-Declaration of Income – for employed clients who lack income documentation, are self-employed or receive cash payments for employment
      3. Zero-Income Declaration – for clients with no income

The self-declaration of income and zero-income declaration forms are only available during COVID-19 to increase accessibility to food assistance.

What about new clients or others unable to access the pantries?

New clients or others who are unable to access the food pantries can follow the same procedure as above, but must also provide a completed application form. Pantry intake forms are available to download or can be picked up at either site ahead of time.
