  • Our next Saturday food distribution is July 9th

    No need to show up before 9am! At our Saturday distributions, each person who is here at 9:15am will receive a randomly drawn ticket to get their place in line. After that, we will use the usual ticket system. As always, we expect the shortest wait to be after 11 am. Please bring your own bags and some form of ID with you.
