Important Distribution Notes

If you qualify for services, you are allowed to visit a distribution. We provide groceries to low-income households and those suffering from a food emergency.


  • All distributions are drive-thru.
    • Clients may arrive at any time during the posted distribution. Check-in starts at appointed time. Distributions are first come, first served.
    • Have a space already cleared for your food before you arrive.
      • We suggest providing empty boxes or bags for our team to place food in. This way your food does not roll around in your trunk or truck bed.
    • Follow all directions of staff members or distribution leader.
    • When it is your turn, pop your trunk.
    • Make sure to place your vehicle in park while the food bank team is loading your groceries. 
    • Clients will be provided with a variety of food from the following categories: frozen or canned meat, canned non-perishable items, loose fruits, loose vegetables, packaged fruits, packaged vegetables, salads, baked goods, and breads.
