Food Pantries

Food assistance from pantries is available at three locations.

About the Program

Our SHARE Food Network collaborates with the pantries to develop food packages based upon community need. The packages include protein items and fresh produce as they are available. Personal care items, such as soap and diapers, and supplemental grocery gift cards are also available at each location in limited quantities.
