Provides weekly food distributions consisting of fresh produce, meat, and shelf-stable products to enrolled participants. Food can only be picked up at the site at which the person is registered. (It is not possible to pick up from an alternate site if the distribution date is missed or if the site was closed that day.)
Some distribution sites are specific for seniors and individuals with disabilities only. Seniors and individuals with disabilities can either register for a senior/disability specific distribution site or can register for a distribution site available for all ages and abilities. Low income seniors are also encouraged to enroll in the monthly Supplemental Food Program (see separate entry under this agency).
Same day food: New applicants who wait at the site until the end of the distribution period may be given food the same day they apply for the program if there is additional food remaining after the standard distribution is completed. *If same day food is needed, refer to the Emergency Food Box Program under the same agency.
Transferring to a new pantry site: To transfer to a different pantry location once you are enrolled in the weekly food pantry program, go to the new pantry location during the enrollment period and request a transfer. Official transfer can take up to two weeks. As with initial enrollment, same day food is not guaranteed.
Visit the food pantries during program hours (no phone access)
