Thank you to all of you who have been sending in donations to help us at this time. There are no words to express what a difference this has made for those we serve and in keeping our doors open. YOU ARE AMAZING!!! Our donations for July were 25% of what they were last year. Now more than ever we need your financial help. Please go to the donate page to help our food bank remain stocked with food. As with many stores, our supplies have dropped and our donors have less food to give us. Your financial donations, will help us buy food for those in need. The impact of the coronavirus is already being felt. Today in three hours, we served 100 people! Fifty-six of those families were here for emergency food.
Until further notice, we are not limiting emergency boxes. Please come if you need food. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO REMAIN OPEN FOR AS LONG AS WE CAN. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IT IS THOSE WHO ARE SHOPPING BY DONATIONS THAT HELP US PROVIDE THE FOOD FOR THOSE IN NEED. Shop by donation when you can, so we can continue to provide food for those in need. Save your emergency boxes for when you really need them.
In keeping with Federal and State Guidelines, we will be limiting the number of patrons inside the food bank to allow for social distancing until further notice.
Please wear a face mask without visible holes that will cover your nose and mouth
Those that come inside the Food Bank will have temperatures scanned with an infrared thermometer
We ask that you do your best to only touch the items you plan to take (THANK YOU)
Please do not come to the food bank if you are sick or have been in contact with someone who has been sick.
To help us better serve you in the morning, we will have three lines - shopping by donation, emergency box, and sack lunch. Please stand in the appropriate line, so we may serve you as quickly as possible. We will be using an infrared thermometer to scan for temperatures. If a temperature of 99 degrees or higher is detected, we will ask you to move to a safe area away from others to give you food.
NOTE: All food bank volunteers wear face masks and gloves and have temperatures scanned upon entry. We are doing our best to keep you and ourselves safe and healthy.
Shopping by Donation
Please remember to be conscious of social distance. For anyone coming into the food bank, we will be using an infrared thermometer, to scan temperatures before entering. Please only touch the items you are actually going to take.
Anyone may get a sack lunch. We do our best to put a variety of foods with something to drink in the lunch. Please do not eat the lunch on the premises or leave unwanted items or trash in the parking lot.
We will do our best to give you a variety of foods in your box. We always try to include some type of bread and eggs. Even we are struggling to get these items during this time. Box contents are constantly changing based on what we have available.
We are sanitizing the check out counter between each patron. We sanitize the grocery carts throughout the time we are open. We are washing down doors and handles on coolers throughout the day. As with anywhere you go, remember to wash your hands when you return home!
