Thank You, Donors!
Please remember to bring items only on Wednesdays. Please do not leave items unless the Food Shelf is 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. If you would like to drop off donations between 12 Noon and 6 PM, you can park at Claussen’s Greenhouse.

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, 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
