Stop by our office, no appointment is necessary. You will be asked to complete an Intake Form at your first visit, and then once again each new year. Once the Intake Form is completed and all of the necessary proof documents are submitted, you will be issued a Pantry Card. That card must be presented each time you visit the Pantry and you will be asked to sign in. A Volunteer will assist you with your shopping.
