Giving and Receiving Help This December

December 14, 2020

In need of food assistance?

As we move into the holiday season, we will have various changes to our operations schedule. Please be mindful of the dates we will be open and make plans accordingly.

We will be closed Thursday, December 24 and Friday, December 25 in observance of Christmas, as well as Thursday, December 31 and Friday, January 1 in observance of New Year's.

If you're visiting to receive food assistance:

  • Please clean out your trunk *before* arriving. We need this space to load food items into your car. If your trunk does not open, you will be asked to pull over to the parking lot, your food will be brought to you in a shopping cart, and you will be asked to load your own car to keep volunteers and staff safe.
  • Please remain inside your vehicle at all times.
  • Please bring and have your photo ID ready.
  • You're eligible to return after 30 days.
  • We are serving one family per car.
  • If you are a bus rider or walker, please follow signs to the designated area to be served.
