How does Curbside service work? A volunteer will greet you in your vehicle in the parking lot during regular pantry hours. Please bring your photo ID. At check-in, we will ask about needs, confirm that this is your once-a-month visit, then 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. On a second monthly visit, volunteers will load perishable items including produce 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
What shall I bring to Check-In?
Please bring your Photo ID and on your first visit, please show one proof of residency document with your name, current address - dated within the last 90 days. (Utility bill, Lease, Medical Bill, etc.) Proof of address is re-checked annually. *A PROXY (picking up for you) must have a copy of your photo ID and proof of residency, along with a letter that includes your name, address, signature, number in household, phone number, PROXY name, phone and address.
