Food Pantry

Need help with food?

Our food pantry has a large selection of fresh produce, bread, meat, dairy, dry goods and more. We also offer personal-care items, pet food and household cleaning products. Some months, rent, utilities, bus fare, medical bills or fixing the car have stretched your budget and there’s nothing left to buy food this month. We can help.

Notes on eligibility:

  • Households may visit the food pantry once every two weeks.
  • We ask that one member of the household show a valid ID during check-in.
How to get food:
  • Outdoor, drive-through service.
  • Pantry2Home online ordering. Pantry2Home has a NEW website! Please see below.
