Food Pantry News

We operate a food pantry within our daily business hours Monday through Saturday. 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.

Appointments can be scheduled for the current day in our thrift store, or over the phone for the following day, subject to availability.
