  • Households may visit one distribution each week.
  • Please limit the amount of people in your vehicle.
  • Please have a space cleared for your groceries in your trunk or truck bed before you arrive for distribution.
  • Pop your trunk. If your trunk does not open, we will place your food on the hood of your vehicle. You may then get out and put it in your car once our team member has stepped away. We will not put anything in the interior of your car.
  • Sanitize everything we give you. Wash produce and sanitize all cans and packaging.
