As has been the schedule, the Food Shelf will be open on Wednesday from 12 Noon to 6 PM. We may ask a few of you to try a new shopping list where you will have your choice of items in the monthly groceries. We will continue to ask clients to wait in their vehicles. It is our hope that this will not take any longer than you have been waiting for us to fill your perishables list previously. We ask for your patience as we work towards giving you more options not only with perishables but with non-perishable groceries.

Annual Proof of Residency Requirement
Please bring your Proof of Residency when you visit the Food Shelf for the first time or if you have not been to the Food Shelf in 2021. Documentation should be a bill, such as a utility bill, insurance bill, etc., or a mortgage/lease agreement. A driver’s license and/or car registration can NOT be used for Proof of Residency.

Please remember to bring items only on Wednesdays during the hours we are open. Please do not leave items at the Food Shelf unless we are open. Volunteers are at the Food Shelf beginning at 11 AM on Wednesdays preparing for the day. If you want to drop off donations between 11 AM and 12 Noon, please come to the side door of the Food Shelf.

Local Home Gardeners
If you have extra produce in your gardens this summer, we are happy to have you share them with us. As it says above, there are volunteers preparing for the day beginning at 11 AM on Wednesdays, which is an easier time for volunteers to receive donations.

PLEASE STAY SAFE AND WELL! We hope everyone is getting their vaccine.

THANK YOU again from the Volunteers and Clients
