How Ordering Works
Each household is eligible for one monthly distribution. Once registered, all you have to do is log in on a Tuesday or Thursday that you’re eligible to customize your order for that month and lock in your cart.
How Pickup Works
After registering, you’ll select a pick-up window. Be sure you’re available during the window and have appropriate transportation for over 80 pounds of healthy food!
If you are unable to come in, you’ll need to sign a form called a “Proxy” that gives permission for someone else to pick up your food. Click here to access the Proxy form
If you are a caregiver for someone who needs food and cannot physically come in to our sites, please print out the Proxy form, have the food recipient sign it, and bring it into the Pantry with you.
