PROOF OF RESIDENCE INFORMATION: We continue to check Proof of Residency for any new client or anyone who has not visited the Food Shelf this year. Please remember that this is the only piece of personal information we require in order for you to use the services of the Food Shelf. Proof would be a current bill, lease, etc., with your name and address. A driver’s license or car registration can not be used as Proof of Residence.
CANOPY UP: The canopy should be up outside the Food Shelf this week. There are tables with miscellaneous items that are not on our shopping list and recently outdated items (marked as such).
DONATIONS: Thank you to all who donate so generously. We appreciate the financial donations and grocery donations helping to stock our shelves. The high-priority items are those that are on the shopping list used by our clients. You can find a list of high-priority items by visiting the Donate page on our website (or click here to view the list). Any other donated items that are not on our shopping list are placed on a miscellaneous table which we put outside under our canopy, weather permitting. If you are donating items from your pantry, please check the dates and DO NOT donate outdated groceries. For the last quarter of 2022, you donated 13,420 pounds of groceries and produce.
MASK WEARING: Please continue to wear a mask when talking with Food Shelf volunteers. Volunteers continue to wear masks throughout their shifts. COVID-19 is still out here, but just as important, the Flu virus is here.
NOTIFICATION PROCEDURE IF FOOD SHELF IS CLOSED: As in past years, if school is canceled due to weather during the winter on a Wednesday, the Food Shelf will also be closed.
Please stay safe and well!
Help us spread the word to those that may not see the Front Porch Forum, Facebook, or website posts!
