How does Curbside service work? A volunteer will greet you in your vehicle in the parking lot during curbside pantry hours.  Please bring your photo ID. At check-in, we will ask about your needs + requests.

What is typically supplied?

At your once-a-month visit, volunteers will load pre-packaged groceries into your vehicle. This typically includes bread, pastry, meat, dairy, bagged fresh produce, boxed food staples and personal care items.  We will try to meet your special requests.

 

On a second monthly visit, volunteers will load perishable items including fresh produce, meat and bread. 

Special Requests? Please ask at check-in, often we have additional items that meet specific needs such as diapers, pet food, family large-sized items, vegetarian staples, and so on. If ONCE a month visit is not meeting your family's needs, please email dinky@dublinfoodpantry.org
