How Distribution Works

On your first visit, you will be asked to complete a simple intake form, and then you may shop. You will be provided a reusable bag on your first visit. Collect the food and other items that you want, let us weigh the food that you've selected, and you may be on your way. Please email

 with any questions or if you'd like to make an appointment with a Pantry staff member.
