Our Daily Bread (Extra Food Available):
Starting February 14th, we will be open from 11 AM to 1 PM on Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays to distribute extra produce, can goods and bakery products. This distribution is for our clients only but is not restricted to the one monthly visit of our Food Pantry. Clients may stop by as often as once a week and the food selected will not count against their monthly allotment. There may not be food available EVERY time we are open as this reflects just the excess from our usual distribution times. Limits per household may change from visit to visit based on availability.
Mondays and Wednesdays, 3:30 to 6 p.m. – by appointment only
Opportunities to help include: interviewing clients, preparing boxes, carrying boxes to client’s vehicle, or making food/monetary donations. Contact Larry O’Connor at 967-4533 for more information or to volunteer.
The Clothes Hanger is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 to 6 pm and 1st and 3rd Saturdays from 9 to 11 am.
