Donated Food Pantry Program
Food Pantry – This service is available once a month to anyone in need and who provides the required information to be updated. Those who do not qualify for government sponsored programs are labeled “Pantry Only”. We distribute based on guidelines set by our Board of Directors. It is limited by what-ever we have, including meats. It includes the Feeding America Retail Donations from Wal-Mart and Ruler Foods as well as other donations. It is received in addition to any other programs. This is the program where clients actually “shop” for their items in a grocery type set-up. Click here for requirements to apply.

This is what the older generation called “commodities”. We refer to it as the USDA program. The food is provided by the Federal Government and we distribute it based on their guidelines. The amount we receive each month is based on what we distributed the prior month. Everyone who qualifies is encouraged to pick up each month. Click here for qualifications.
