NEW CLIENT FOOD DISTRIBUTION POLICY
How It Works!
Clients may use the pantry ONE time per week.
Each week the client family may visit the WEEKLY area. This is where you will find miscellaneous boxed and canned items, bonus items, pet food, breads, baked goods, produce, dairy and some other refrigerated and frozen items.
During one of your weekly visits (one time per month) you will be permitted to visit the MONTHLY room.
This is where you will find boxed and canned foods such as soups, veggies and fruit, pasta, cereal and more to stock up your cupboards. You will also receive a few meat selections, condiments, paper products and toiletries as they are available.
If you miss a shopping trip you may NOT double up the next month.
Concerning the once a month MONTHLY visit:
Clients whose last names begin with the letters A through J may visit the MONTHLY room
either the 1st thru 7th or 15th thru 21st of each month.
Clients whose last names begin with the letters K through Z may visit the MONTHLY room
either the 8th thru 14th or 22nd thru 28th of each month.
PLEASE ASK A VOLUNTEER FOR MORE INFORMATION OR FOR A SCHEDULE.
PLEASE: WE REQUEST THAT YOU ONLY TAKE FOOD THAT YOUR FAMILY CAN USE.
We do not turn anyone away who needs food.
***Those who live outside the school district, will be given an emergency food bag and redirected to a pantry location in their area.
