Food Pantry

To register for the food pantry, you must meet income guidelines (see chart). To find out if you qualify, look at the household size in the first column and then move across the row to see if your income is AT or BELOW the income guidelines listed. For example, if you have a family of 4 and your gross income is now at or below $4,278 per month, you are eligible for the food pantry.

Eligibility is re-evaluated annually. On your first visit every year, please bring the following documents:

  • A photo ID – name, date of birth, photo
  • Proof of address – a piece of mail (stamped within the last 30 days) with your name and current address OR current lease agreement

Every time you visit the food pantry, please bring these items:

  • Proof of address – a current piece of mail (stamped within the last 30 days) with your name and current address OR current lease agreement
  • Your own reusable bags, cart, and/or boxes to carry your items

Reservations are not required. Guests are served on a first come, first served basis. All guests will complete a short registration process onsite.  Your first visit must be in person.  Once you are registered,  you can designate a proxy  to pick up for you.  You can also register onsite at distributions to serve as a proxy to pick up food for a neighbor, family member, or friend. Each household will need to complete an annual self-declaration of need form to receive food.
