FOOD PANTRY YOUTH. With the Food Pantry, we aim to protect the privacy of all clients who come to us for help.  In order to maintain this, our policy is that all children under the age of 18 need to remain in the back areas from 4-7 pm (pantry, re-stock, prep, or freezer and fridge room). Adults must attend under 18 children at all times also. We are truly grateful for and encourage youth participation, but client privacy is something we value. Please contact Cathy Williams at phone 752-2339 or Erika Smith at phone 916-0167 before pantry night if you intend to bring an under 18 child with you to volunteer.

The invoice shall not be over 60 days old. These two documents must be presented each time in order to receive food. Please be prepared with list of family members including ages of all individuals residing in household.

WHEAT has been averaging 50-60 families each time the pantry is open. These 50-60 families represent approximately 150-200+ individuals including adults and children. It takes a lot of food to keep the pantry supplied and WHEAT is so blessed to have the support of the area churches/organizations. Thank you and God bless …. Cathy and the WHEAT Board.
