How To Get Help

If you are in need of emergency food assistance, please visit one of our food pantries. At the pantry, you will have the opportunity meet with one of our trained counselors to *assess your situation and review your budget. The counselor may also provide referrals to other programs and resources that you may qualify for. In order to help in this endeavor, it is necessary to bring the following documentation with you to the food pantry when seeking assistance:

  1. Picture ID for everyone 18 years of age and older
  2. One of the following for everyone in the household:
    • Social Security Card
    • Medicare or Medicaid Card
    • Birth Certificate
    • Blessing Certificate
    • Visa
    • Passport
    • INS Issued Document
  3. Bring Proof of Current Residence:
    • Utility Bill
    • Lease Agreement
  4. Proof of Household Income: (Any of the following) 
    • Most Recent Pay Check Stub
    • Bank Statement Showing Direct Deposit
    • Letter of Benefits

*During this meeting, a counselor will determine if the food pantry is the appropriate resource to help meet your basic needs, and how often you can  return to the food bank to receive a food order (enough food to last approximately one week).
