Next Food Pantry Distribution is set for Wednesday, January 20 beginning at 6:00 PM or when all 200 tickets have been given out.
Important Food Pantry Information: We want to take a moment to clear up some confusion regarding our distribution time. On our sign and in all advertisements we list the start time for distribution at 6 p.m. This is our target time, but as many of you know often times we have ended up having to start our distribution before 6 p.m. The reason for this is that people begin lining up very early in the day and once that line reaches the highway we have no choice but to begin parking cars and giving out numbers to those in line for food. We can’t have folks out on the highway for safety reasons and we can’t close the parking lot as people would likely still line up on the highway. This has resulted in us having all bags of food (188) spoken for well before 6 p.m. and we see no benefit in making people sit any longer than they have to, hence beginning before 6 p.m. We know this can be frustrating but we assure you we are doing the best we can. Our recommendation is to arrive early, but we can’t specify a time because how early folks get here changes from month to month. We are honored to be able to serve in our community and thank you for allowing us to do so! Please share this information with anyone you would like to help clear up and questions or confusion.
