Yellow sign that reads, "School bust stop ahead"


The Food Shelf will be open for regular hours on Wednesday, December 6 from 12 Noon to 6 PM. There is early dismissal at Union Memorial School on Wednesday so there will be school buses in and out between 12 PM and 1 PM. Please line up coming from Claussens for that first hour. Please be careful not to block the service road and entrance to Claussens between the Food Shelf and Claussens.

PROOF OF RESIDENCE: Please bring Proof of Residency if you are new, have been asked to provide it, or if you would like to provide it for 2024.

We hope everyone had a peaceful Thanksgiving!

DONATIONS: Thank you so much to all who brought dinner fixings and turkeys to the Food Shelf prior to Thanksgiving. We did meet our goal! We had several businesses and neighborhoods doing food drives. We appreciate all the generosity demonstrated these last few weeks. We also are very appreciative of the financial donations received and hope you find that you can continue to provide funds that we can put towards our purchases of items on our shopping list. Please note that the Food Shelf operates on an all-volunteer staff and financial donations to cover the cost of food and utilities.

Please stay safe and well!

Help us spread the word to those that may not see the Front Porch Forum, Facebook, or website posts!
