What if I can't make it to the pantry myself?
Often, clients cannot make it to the pantry themselves due to illness or infirmity. When that happens, you can send a representative to the pantry to pick up food & clothing. We will require the client fill out a form designating that person as their representative. (Residents 75 and older or with disabilities)
In addition, the representative will need to present his or her own photo ID when picking up food & clothing for the client. If the client misplaces this form before the visit to the pantry, the client can send a signed and dated note stating who their representative will be & family size. If this is the first visit, please send proof of residency.
We require that the representative bring a completed form and their photo ID at the time of each visit.
