          Distribution Method

Beginning in September, 2012, the Food Shelf changed it's method of food distribution from a version of "pre-packed" to "Client Choice".

Accompanied by a Food Shelf volunteer, shoppers are able to choose the items they require --based on the size of their household -- from the various categories offered.
