Ongoing Client Needs


This includes non-perishable food items (unopened packages, not expired), fresh produce, refrigerated and frozen items.
Clients can receive food from the DMARC side of our pantry once per calendar month. If they need more food later in the month, they can visit our “Anytime Room” which is entirely stocked by donations from the public, grocery stores, and local restaurants.
