WEEKLY GROCERIES DISTRIBUTION  (Please bring grocery bags as needed since we do not provide them.)
Those in need of food assistance are welcome to come in once a week for supplemental groceries which is usually enough for approximately 5-6 meals.  If it is an emergency, you can come in once a week, for up to four weeks.

If assistance is needed longer than 4 weeks, we ask that you come in for an interview to become a client.  To become a client, please come by on a Tuesday or Thursday, and bring with you these requirements:

1.   A photo ID for each person living in the household age 18 years and older
2.       Birth certificate, Medical card, or immunization card for each child living in the household
3.       Proof of address, i.e. a bill that is mailed showing the name and address
4.       Rent or mortgage receipt if applicable
5.       Income verification for all working adults in the household if applicable
6.       Social Security, Unemployment or Disability payments if applicable
