Presently the Pantry is open for food distribution on Monday from 2-4 PM and Thursday from 10AM-12PM based on available staffing, but our goal is to return to our normal schedule which includes Tuesday 10AM-12PM.
The Pantry relies on volunteers to meet our goals. We need volunteers to help in many areas, including food pickups from the Gemma Moran Food Distribution Center and various supporting supermarkets, stocking food, prepackaging food items for distribution, distribution of food to families who come to the Pantry by car or walking and a small amount of record keeping.
