Food Pantry

Como un servicio crítico para la comunidad, estamos dedicados a garantizar que todos en nuestra comunidad tengan acceso a alimentos. Nuestra Despensa de Comida abrirá martes a jueves de 9 a 11AM.

Nuestra Despensa de comida continúa dando servicio en orden de llegada usando el método de auto-servicio. Por favor espere en su automóvil y nuestros empleados le llevarán la comida hasta usted. No recomendamos que las personas vengan caminando, sin embargo, entendemos que algunas personas no cuentan con medio de transporte. Si este es su caso, no dude en visitarnos, en la forma en que usted pueda y un miembro de nuestro equipo lo atenderá con gusto.
Nuestros voluntarios son bilingües y están listos para servirle en inglés y español. En este momento, no requeriremos documentación de ningún tipo. 

Si usted es parte de alguna organización que busca servicios de despensa de alimentos para sus clientes, comuníquese con nuestra CEO, Rosamaria Murillo, rmurillo@elbuen.org. 

Gracias por su comprensión mientras continuamos navegando esta crisis de salud junto con nuestra comunidad.

As a critical service to the community, we are dedicated to ensuring everyone in our community has access to food. Our food pantry will be open Tuesdays-Thursdays from 9-11AM.

Food will be provided on a first come, first served basis using a drive-through method of distribution. Please stay inside your car as our staff will bring your food out to you. Though we do not encourage walk-ups, we understand that some folks in need of assistance may be without transportation.  If this is your situation, please come by in whatever means you are able.  A staff member will be glad to assist you.

Our bilingual staff is available to assist you in both English and Spanish. At this time, we do not require documentation of any kind.
