Is there anything new that I need to know about getting food assistance?
- Mobile Food Pantries are drive through only.
- Food Pantries in buildings will distribute differently – they may only allow one household inside at a time; they may bring your food out to your car and do paperwork through the car window. Other differences like this may happen – for your safety. Please be flexible.
- Volunteers should be wearing masks and gloves
