MASK WEARING: Please continue to wear a mask when talking with Food Shelf volunteers.

PROOF OF RESIDENCY INFORMATION: If you have not been to the Food Shelf before, please bring Proof of Residence on your first visit. Proof of Residency needs to be a piece of mail with your current name and address or a bill, lease, or insurance form. Unfortunately, a driver’s license and/or car registration can NOT be used for Proof of Residence. If you have not come to the Food Shelf this year, please bring Proof of Residency for 2022.

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS: We have tables outside the Food Shelf during our open hours, one with miscellaneous items and the other with recently outdated items. Please help yourself to those items that you will use.

DONORS: There are volunteers at the Food Shelf beginning at 11 AM on Wednesdays preparing for the day if you would like to drop off donations between 11 AM and 12 Noon. Some items we use in monthly groceries include apple juice; Progresso or Campbell’s Chunky soups with chicken or beef; cereals (Honey Nut Cheerios, Raisin Bran, etc.); pasta sauce (without meat). Please check the dates on the items to be donated to ensure they are not out of date. Thank you for your help!

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