Food Help

Welcome!

To ensure that you can access the available food smoothly and in a respectful way, we are asking everyone to pre-register. This simple five question survey (on the site registration form) will help us serve you at the distribution site and will help the state, and its partners, better prepare for on-going needs. Please take a few minutes to complete the registration prior to going to the next food distribution site. Thank you for your help. 

Due to variations in the amount of food requested, each registration is now limited to food for one household. However, we do still encourage people to pick up for others who may lack transportation. If you want to pick up for another household, they can make a reservation and give you their codeword or you can make another reservation for them. When you arrive at the site, give the greeter all the codewords for registrations you're picking up and you will be able to get multiple sets of food.

Locations:

Distributions sites will rotate around the state in July and August, with distributions occurring in a different region of the state each day. If you don’t make it to the distribution date for your town, check the calendar below to see when distribution will be back in your region. Registration is now open for the first two weeks of August.
