We distribute free grocery items including: dry goods, canned goods, bread, and fresh produce
Gently used clothing in good condition for minimal cost ($.25 to $1.00 per item; $5.00 limit per session)
There are no income restrictions to visit the pantry, but a personal identification card is required at the time of check-in
