Because we distribute food partially funded with Federal and State money, we must verify place of residence, how many individuals live in the residence and dine together, and income. Only one person per household is allowed to come and pick up food for all household members. You may also assign a proxy who will be allowed to pick up food if you can’t make it.

Please bring the following documents with you on your next visit so that we may continue to serve you.
