Food Pantry News

We operate a food pantry during our daily business hours Monday through Friday. Through a partnership with Hunger Free Polk County and the Board of Supervisors, we also operate an evening food pantry Tuesdays and Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for the benefit of those who may not be able to come during the day. This night pantry is held at our 6th Avenue Location. Doors open for the Tuesday and Thursday Night Pantry at 4:30, and clients are served on a first come first serve basis.
