Things we want you to know…

• CLOSED MONDAYS: Effective Monday, May 11th the Pantry will no longer offer distribution on Mondays. This will allow us to receive and process larger deliveries so that we can serve you better. We will be open the other distribution days as usual: Tue 3-7pm, Wed 11-2 and Thurs 10-12.
• We know many of you are receiving unfamiliar foods, and we ask for your patience as we work to find new ways to get closer to providing you only what you need.
• In the meantime, if you have excess food, we encourage you to share it with someone who might be in need, try something new, or donate it back in our donation center.
• Each week we will now be asking you more questions in order to better accommodate your needs, which may slow down the process somewhat.
● Stay tuned as we are working on ways to make each week’s list available for you to fill out prior to coming to the Pantry. If you want to learn more, please email
