We believe there is dignity in choice and allow our visitors to take what they need without question.
Our shoppers’ needs are very real and we will help in any way we can. Providing food assistance including fresh fruits and vegetables and a variety of shelf-stable goods to anyone in need is our primary mission. We believe there is Dignity in Choice so we use a Client Choice model that lets our guest choose the foods they need for their families.
Our families in need do not come from just one demographic—they come from all walks of life. Diverse paths and life circumstances have brought them to us. Some are without homes, living in cars, abandoned buildings or shelters. Some live in less than adequate housing. Some are parents, some are grandparents raising little ones. They are employed and retired. Unemployed and underemployed. Some live close by, some are travelers. They are shy, they are outgoing. Some visit the pantry every week, some visit with us only once or twice.
We keep the process of shopping very simple. We do not ask our guests to qualify or prove their need. No judgment—no questions. We strive to make a personal connection with each shopper to let them know that they are cared for and that they are important to us.
We currently serve around 200 families every week.
