Choice Pantry
We recently upgraded our food pantry to a Choice Pantry. Families in need can visit our Choice Pantry to get a 3-day supply of groceries. Instead of receiving a pre-determined bag of groceries, families can choose food items they enjoy. Our staff and volunteers help families make nutritionally balanced selections.

The Choice Pantry is open Monday and Friday from 1–2:45 p.m. and Tuesday-Thursday from 10 a.m.-2:45 p.m. No appointment necessary.
