During COVID, things changed. We ask that one family come into the pantry at a time, wearing a mask. The volunteers will collect the food for you. NOW*** We still ask that only one member of the family come in to the build, just to keep things safe for everyone. Wear a mask if YOU are sick or if you choose, it is not required. We are returning to the Pre-Covid procedure and clients will be able to select from the shelves themselves. We are seeking to restore dignity to people in need, and feel this is an important step in that process.
