Once a month you shop for 5 days worth of food.
You select items from our shelves where the number of items for each type of food varies depending on family size and seasonal availability. There is a volunteer assigned to help you and answer any questions you might have.
Typically, your shopping cart will include milk, bread, eggs, cereal, juice, school snacks, baked beans, pasta, pasta sauce, mac & cheese, canned soups and stews, canned fish & meat, canned and fresh fruits and veggies, rice, cheese, yogurt, meat, peanut butter, coffee & tea, and toilet paper.
Baby food and items (e.g., diapers) are sometimes available, as are some other household items (e.g., shampoo, dish soap, etc.), and pet food.
