Check Our FAQs

What do I need to do in order to qualify for food?

We want to make it easy for you to get the food you and your family need. Simply bring your photo ID, a copy of a utility bill for proof of residency, and your completed registration form if you’re new to the Food Pantry. Visit our “Find Food” page to register and learn more.

When do you currently distribute food and how?

We currently distribute food on Mondays (Veterans ONLY, please bring dd214 or military ID) from 1 – 2 pm, Tuesdays from 5 – 7 pm, and Thursdays from 1 – 3 pm.

As part of our COVID-19 precautions, we ask you to arrive in a vehicle and to have your trunk empty. Please register online and then bring your photo ID and a utility bill for proof of residency if you’re new to the Food Pantry. When you arrive at our parking lot, please stay in your vehicle and open your trunk. Our attendant will give you instructions from there.

For full details, visit our “find food” page. You can find our address on our contact page.

Can I pick up food for someone else?
You definitely can! However, you must have your photo ID as well as a copy of their photo ID, a copy of one of their utility bills for proof of residency, and they must have completed our online registration form if they’re new to the Food Pantry. Visit our “Find Food” page to register and learn more.
What are the requirements to volunteer at the Food Pantry?

While the work we do at the Food Pantry is safe, it can be somewhat physically demanding. You should be able to remain on your feet for a few hours, as well as lift at least 20 pounds. If you can’t, that may still be okay. We can always find ways for you to help that fit your skills and abilities.

In light of our COVID-19 precautions, we do ask that you refrain from volunteering if you feel ill in any way. Thank you.

You’ll also get to serve alongside lots of friendly people. When you work with us, it’s definitely a family affair! So, make sure you’re okay taking direction from a team leader, as well as working closely with other volunteers.

Visit our “get involved” page for details on how to volunteer and what opportunities exist.

What fundraisers do you have coming up?

Thanks for asking! Fundraisers are an important and fun way of…well…funding The Pantry. Through the participation of gracious people like yourself, fundraisers keep our lights on, our shelves stocked, and our doors open, which means more people are being helped. To see all of the fundraisers we have coming up, please visit our fundraisers page.

What types of donations does the Food Pantry need?

Thanks so much for considering supporting the Food Pantry’s mission through your gracious donations! One of our biggest needs is monetary donations. As our name implies, we use the majority of these for gathering enough food to supply to those in need. However, your monetary donation also supports our operating expenses, ensuring that we not only have life-nourishing food but also the facility, utilities, vehicles, and other tools we need for overcoming food insecurities in our community. You can give online right now, or you can learn more about donating here.

Speaking of vehicles, we also gladly accept gas cards. We currently pick up food donations 33 times EVERY week. If you do the math, that’s over 1,700 trips in a single year. Any gas cards you donate to the Food Pantry keep our vehicles gassed up and our shelves stocked.

Aside from monetary donations and gas cards, you can give dry goods, shelf items, and hygiene products. Just grab a box, fill it with items, and drop it off at our facility. We even accept bulk donations from organizations like restaurants and grocery stores. You can learn more about donating food and other goods on our “donate now” page.
