After showing proof of residency and completing our client intake form on your first visit, you will sign in confidentially at the front desk and have a seat in our waiting room. When it is your turn to shop, a volunteer will greet you. With a shopping cart, bags, and a quantity guideline sheet based on your family size, the two of you will work your way through the Pantry, making your individual choices based on your preferences and needs. Offerings may vary from month to month, but you always will find a variety of choices, including canned goods, dry goods, fresh produce, frozen meats, and basic toiletries and household items.
