1. Proof of Residency - Accepted items include a current bill with their name and the listed address or a current pay stub with the listed address.  For children, please provide a letter from the school or current report card with their name and the listed address.

2. Verification of Income - Accepted items include a current pay stub, SSI/SSD statement, documentation from unemployment, tax return, or Medicaid card.

Documents must be brought to the first pantry visit, or we will not be able to provide you with pantry services until certification is complete.
