Food Blessings Policy
After your volunteer shift you will receive a voucher for one visit to select food at our Ministry Selection Center. The voucher may be used anytime we’re open within the specified expiration date. If you do not need the voucher, we encourage you to give it to someone in need. There is a minimal handling fee per pound that is expected to be paid on each visit. These products may not be sold or bartered for any reason.
