Community food Services
Community Food Services offers food assistance and meals to those who are experiencing food insecurity. We rely on the generosity of neighboring congregations, businesses, and our volunteers to maintain this essential program and have the ability to provide these services to the community.
We are committed to staying open and distributing essential meals and groceries to vulnerable individuals during COVID. Due to the pandemic, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of individuals and families we serve. We have implemented new policies and procedures to uphold a safe and sanitary environment for our clients and staff. In the community lunch program, all food is packaged individually as ‘grab & go.’ In the pantry we have implemented a curbside model. Staff will provide boxes of meat, milk, eggs and non-perishable items and the client can select fresh fruit, vegetables and bread from tables. Clients may visit the pantry weekly, rather than monthly, as a result of COVID. We have streamlined the process to obtain food to try to avoid long wait times and prevent personal contact between clients and staff. We ask for patience and cooperation as we do our best serve the community
