Food Shelf

Food Shelf Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm / Friday: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

The Food Shelf is committed to providing on-going, reliable access to healthy groceries once a month (including meat, dairy and produce), and unlimited access to bread and produce to anyone in need. We offer a Good Eats Program which addresses food shelf visitors’ needs for inexpensive and creative ways of preparing produce-based meal options. It is designed to serve everyone who comes through the doors of the Haven. The program consists of developing budget-conscious recipes, on-site food preparation using ingredients found at the Food Shelf, and food sampling for clients with hand-outs of the corresponding recipes.

A large portion of the items in the Haven’s Food Shelf are the result of generous donations of food from individuals, businesses, churches, and civic groups throughout the year. Food drives are always welcome and appreciated! The Haven is committed to purchasing food items to supplement the donations, to keep an on-going, reliable access to food for those in need.

There is no criteria to make a visit to the Food Shelf. All are welcome.

Top five current Food Shelf needs:

  • Turkeys
  • Stuffing
  • Pasta sauce
  • Peanut butter
  • Cereal

I don’t have to panic anymore. I know I can use the Food Shelf and work with other local agencies to get us through.
