At this time we ask that all customers remain in their vehicles and do not show up early. All vehicles will be directed to park in the lot as if they were waiting to get on a ferry. We also ask that before you come to the food bank, please make sure you have room in your car's trunk for volunteers to add your groceries.

If you are employed and your work schedule does not permit you to come during our distribution, please contact our director to find a solution.
