COVID-19 & Food Shelf

The food shelf is open during its regular hours, but will be drive-up only! Please stay in your car and drive to the outside Food Shelf door (on 2nd st.). We will take your name and family size and have a box ready for you to put in your car. We value our community health. Thank you for your help!
