Notes about our food bank during Thanksgiving:

We will be running a regular food bank meaning that we do not give out “Thankgiving Baskets”. We may have some of your traditional Thanksgiving items present when you visit, but it is not guarenteed. We will be giving out whatever food donations we have from our partner organizations.

The two days before Thanksgiving tends to be our busiest days of the year. Don’t fear if you see lines out the door! We will having TWO Computer Operator’s present to help with checking you in faster as well as many, many wonderful volunteers assisting you through the food line. Please remember to bring your own bags to carry your bounty home!
