What to Expect
Pantry guests complete a brief intake form in order to receive food from the pantry. This form is NOT used to determine eligibility. The purpose of the form is to gather information so that we can best serve pantry guests.
Once the intake form is completed, pantry guests receive a bag of food. If you have a food allergy or a dietary restriction, please ask us about making a substitution for certain items you cannot eat.
