St Mary mobile food pantry locations for October. No applications, no qualifications or requirement. If you know someone who needs food, please pass along this info.
Also tomorrow is Friday so remember these locations will be open-
Chandler Christian Community Center-
This place is incredible! Not only do they run a FREE mobile food pantry EVERY Friday but they provide so many other services to the community as well. I have seen events from luncheons, free kids haircuts, free music classes, free diapers, etc. They also offer free childcare while you wait for your grocery cart on Fridays. It’s best to show up early around 7:30am to get your ticket for the free groceries. However they do not start distributing them until 9am. This is where that child care room comes in handy while you wait. Of course, you the parent are more than welcomed to stay there with them while they play in the nice air-conditioned room. You can also check out while you are there, the calendar with all the services and classes for the family. Everybody at this location is extremely helpful and joyful.
I had to include this one since it is only 5 min away from Chandler Christian Community Center. They also distribute on Friday, however this one you can only pick up ONCE a month. Unlike the other ones where you can go every week, because of this format it’s never really a long wait. You can walk in and be out with a cart full of great groceries in less than 5 min. They give you here meat, along with other higher end items.
If you have children in diapers, this is where you can ask for a diapers voucher. They will give you a slip with all the information where you can pick up around the corner diapers for free.
The first time you go, you will have to show some ID and fill out a registration form, after that you only sign in. There is a small little waiting room for children with books and some toys and children are allowed to choose one book to take home.
