Emergency Food Pantry

When finances are already tight, an unexpected car repair, a cut in hours at work, or another money crisis can make it difficult to make ends meet for the month.

That's where our emergency food pantry can help. Families, veterans, students, the elderly, and everyone in between who qualifies can receive help from our food pantry once each month. This can supplement benefits received from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly "food stamps"), or just bridge a temporary financial gap.

When they're available, we also provide personal care and household cleaning items through the food pantry. SNAP benefits do not cover these items, and tight budgets can make it difficult to purchase them.

How You Can Help:

- Donate personal care items (toilet paper, soap, deodorant, etc.)
- Donate cleaning supplies (paper towels, window cleaner, floor cleaner)
- Host a drive (rally your family, church group, or other community group)
- Monetary donations (please indicate "Food Pantry" in the memo)
