IMPORTANT CAO UPDATE:
Our Food Pantry will re-open tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24th with temporary extended hours from 10am – 3pm. The pantry will be open from Tuesday – Friday while supplies last.
Clients are required to bring photo ID and some form of ID for other household members to prove household size.
Clients may visit twice a month (once every 16 days). Any Erie County resident currently experiencing a food shortage are welcome to utilize our pantry. We will not require income eligibility documentation during this time in order to limit contact and possible exposure. All clients can verbally attest that they are eligible.
We will be temporarily suspending our Client Choice model and will be operating a “Grab and Go” system and distributing pre-packed bags. Please be assured that we will also practice social distancing and our distribution area will be kept sanitized at all times to protect our staff and clients from the possible spread of COVID-19.
