Sometimes, life can be hard and unexpected changes can make paying for food difficult.  We are an emergency food bank and we are here to help you.

We are happy to meet with you, learn about your needs and help you get back on your feet.  You can use the food bank when in a crisis situation or once every 3 months, if your situation has not improved.

If you need help, call to schedule an appointment with our volunteers who will collect information about your income, expenses, household members, and other needs besides food.

What we need from you:

  • Proof of income, if applicable (pay stubs, SS, SSI, SSD, child support, etc.)
  • Recent bank statement
  • Photo ID
  • Proof of address, if not on income or bank statements (utility bill, lease agreement, etc.)

Orders are usually scheduled within 1-2 days of meeting with a SNM volunteer.
