Eligibility is based on each household’s residency and monthly gross income (income is currently set at 300% of the Federal poverty level). Each food pantry provides a nutritionally balanced food package to last approximately 5-7 days.
To find the food pantry in your community, please contact your local Health & Human Services Department.
Food Pantries may utilize the Food Bank to purchase food at a reduced cost. Funding resources that support these pantries include donations from local service groups, churches and private citizens; Area United Ways & United Way Funds; Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); and the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). CWCAC Agency fundraisers include a summer golf outing and the winter Canadian Pacific Railroad Holiday Train.
