Upon arriving we ask you to please sanitize your hands and sign in.
Please be ready to present your Vaccination card. If you are not vaccinated
it's ok, you will still be allowed in but in smaller numbers.
It is very important that you be respectful to ALL VOLUNTEERS.
We have asked some clients to please attend other food banks due to their mistreatment to our Volunteers. They work endless hours all volunteered to have to deal with anger clients. We are all here to help you with your Food needs and we want to continue to offer this site for your food needs.
No bad mouth talking will be allowed outside the facility while you are
waiting to be let in. If clients come to us to complain about this, you
will be asked to leave. We have had clients causing negative environment outside making clients feel uncomfortable.
We only allow 6 people in the building at one time so you may
be asked to wait outside until it is your turn. One person per Household is allowed in the building. Each family receives 3 boxes that you must bring back for your next pick up. We will not provide you additional boxes if you forget them as we are limited in boxes.
You may choose any food you would like, food have limits on
them so that everyone is allowed a chance to get the same
food item. We just ask that you fit everything into your boxes
and please make sure they close. We have volunteers available
to help you load them into your car, but you might have to
load them based on the availability of the volunteers.
Coats for Kids
We have been given Coats for kids thanks to
NBC Tri-Cities Coats for Kids Program.
KIDS MUST BE PRESENT WHEN COATS ARE PICKED UP.
THE VOLUNTEERS ON FACEBOOK WILL AUTOMATICALLY SEND OUT A MESSAGE STATING THE SAME THING.
THIS IS BECAUSE NOT ALL VOLUNTEERS HAVE PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR CLIENTS.
EVERYONE MUST WEAR A MASK NO MATTER THE AGE.
KIDS MUST BE PRESENT TO TRY THEIR COATS ON.
Please fill out this form:
4 kids per family please! We don't have all sizes available!
