What do I need to bring?

You may also need to provide some information such as your monthly income, employment status, and household expenses so that we can keep your file up-to-date.

Anybody who needs a hamper is eligible.

How often can I get a Hamper?

Currently we offer emergency food hampers once every 30 days, up to a maximum of 7 times per year.

What can I expect to get in my Hamper?

We do our very best to provide a variety of healthy and nutritious meal options in each hamper, and at times may be able to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences on a case-by-case basis. However, the variety and amount of food in each hamper will vary from day-to-day depending upon what we have received as donations. Your Hamper comes with enough food to last your household approximately 7 days.

Can I get my Hamper delivered?

Unfortunately, we cannot deliver food hampers at this time. They must be picked up in person.

How can I carry all this food home?

Our hampers come pre-boxed. If you do not have your own vehicle, you may find that transferring your food hamper into reusable cloth bags, a duffle bag, or a backpack will make it easier to carry your food. Although we encourage the use of reusable bags, we usually have recycled plastic bags or cardboard boxes available for you to pack up your food for more convenient transport.
