What do I need in order to get food?
If you are attending a holiday distribution on December 15 or 17, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Other locations may ask for ID, but you are not required to have anything with you in order to get food.
Do I have to live in the same county to get food from a distribution?
No. Your location will not affect your eligibility to receive food.
How do I know if I qualify?
There are three ways to qualify: either by receiving government benefits (SNAP, SSI, etc.), be eligible based off of income (Guidelines provided by USDA), or be experiencing an expressed crisis. Examples of crisis could include fire, flat tire, paying for medical expenses, or a child needing new glasses. COVID-19 may be a crisis for some if it has affected their household income. For the holiday distributions occurring Dec. 15 and 17, you must have a school-aged child in your family to qualify.
How do mobile markets or mega mobile markets work?
Lines tend to form early, so make sure you arrive on time in a vehicle with an empty trunk or back seat. (Walk-ups are also welcome to come!) A volunteer will visit your car to record your information (name, members in your household, etc.) then cars will proceed to receive food on a first come, first served basis. You will receive a variety of food that may include dairy, meat, produce, pantry staples, and other groceries.
What do I do if I'm picking up food for someone else?
Be sure you come prepared with the information of whomever you will be picking up food for. This information may include name, if they are enrolled in government assistance, and what their income is.
Do I need to register to receive food?
No. All Mega Mobile Markets are open to the public and operate first come, first served. However, the holiday distributions occurring December 15 and 17 are being held in partnership with the Goodfellow Fund, which requires registration here.
