Food on the shelfs at the food shelf.


The Food Shelf is open this Wednesday, January 17, from 12 Noon to 6 PM. Please remember to bring your proof of residency if you are new, have been asked to provide it, or if you need to provide it for 2024. We will be requiring proof of residency during January and February for 2024. Please do it now, don’t wait.

DONATIONS: If you are thinking about organizing a food drive, please look at our website. You can find a list of the shopping list items by visiting the Donate page (or click here to view the list). It is beneficial to all clients if donations are made using that list. We appreciate all your generosity. We are also 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.

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