Office Hours for inquiries and receiving food donations – Monday and Wednesday -8 a.m. to 4 p.m. & Friday – 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
No appointments are necessary during the hours posted above – we serve on a “first come first served basis” – if someone is a new client, we ask that they identify themselves so we can start them on brief paperwork shortly after they arrive. If they want to call to see how busy we are that is fine.
Information that we require for processing eligibility:
You must be a resident of Perry County (there is no time requirement) a driver’s license or photo ID is required.
You must complete the income information. This is a “self declaration.”
If someone is picking up food for another client a proxy form must be filled out and kept on file at all times.
The Food Bank is not open on Tuesday or Thursday.
You may shop once a month at the Food Bank in New Bloomfield
In addition to the Food Bank operation on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at New Bloomfield, we operate eight remote sites for distribution on the 3rd Saturday of each month (with the exception of Blain and Millerstown which is the Friday before the 3rd Saturday).
You are eligible for both opportunities—shopping at New Bloomfield and also picking up a box of groceries at one of the eight remote sites once each month.
