What to Expect

Sign-in with the check-in volunteer. Always bring your photo ID and client card.

New clients are welcome to register in the office any Wednesday between 10am and 6pm. Please bring a photo ID with address (and a bill if the address is not current) for every adult an official document for every child (SS card, birth certificate, health care card, etc.)

A volunteer will assist you as YOU pick out the food from our client-choice food programs, based on your family size. Please bring your own bags!
