At this time, we ask that when visiting the Food Shelf, please WEAR A MASK, even while waiting in your car. Volunteers are also wearing masks. We want to keep everyone safe, visitors and volunteers alike.
Proof of Residency
Please bring your Proof of Residency when you visit the Food Shelf for the first time, if you have not been to the Food Shelf in 2021, or if you have been instructed to bring documentation during your last visit. 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.
WE WILL BE CHECKING EVERYONE’S PROOF OF RESIDENCY IN JANUARY.
BRINGING PROOF OF RESIDENCY IN DECEMBER WILL COUNT FOR 2022.
In January, because New Year’s Day falls on the 1st Saturday of January, we will instead be open on Saturday, January 8, from 9 AM to 11 AM.
For your convenience, volunteers are at the Food Shelf on Wednesdays at 11 AM to prepare for the day. Please feel free to stop by and drop off donations between 11 AM and 6 PM on Wednesdays. Volunteers will also be able to accept donations on Saturday, January 8 from 8:30 AM to 11 AM.
Help us spread the word to those that may not see the Front Porch Forum, Facebook, or website posts! Please do not leave donations outside the building when the Food Shelf is not open. Generally, volunteers are not available to stop by to check for donations on a daily basis. We have had some donations left outside which caused items to freeze and they had to be discarded.
PLEASE STAY SAFE AND WELL!
