Food Pantry

Our food pantry provides a 3-day supply of groceries once per month. On busy days or after 4:00 PM, visitors will receive pre-bagged groceries for their families.

While shopping, you will choose groceries that your family likes. We often have fresh produce, Panera Bread, frozen meat, and frozen entrees and sides from local restaurants and the schools in addition to canned and boxed foods.

If you are in a hurry or prefer a no-contact process, you can now order groceries online and pick them up during business hours.

Cleaning and Hygiene

Twice per year you can receive 6 full-sized cleaning & hygiene items for your family. These are items that are used to clean you or your living space. Typical items available for request include:

  • laundry detergent
  • all-purpose cleaner
  • trash bags
  • shampoo/conditioner
  • toothpaste
  • soap
  • dish detergent
  • paper towels

Clothing Vouchers

We partner with the Opportunity House, located just down the street, to provide vouchers for families for clothing, shoes, & small housewares.

Every 4 months, families can receive a voucher for items. You will take your voucher to Opportunity House and shop for the items that you like and that fit.

Opportunity House frequently sells their items at significantly lower prices than other local shops. We highly recommend visiting them for your shopping needs!
