All shoppers must complete a shopper info form. You can complete this form in person, at our pantry.

Visit either our main pantry during our regular pantry hours, Heartland Community Health Center's Care Cupboard or our mobile pantry, the Cruising Cupboard, at one of the scheduled stops. On your first visit, we can help guide you through the process of completing your info form and choosing food for yourself and your family to take home that day.

Just Food's pantry is designed to be a supplemental food assistance service. Just Food Shoppers can shop once per calendar week, and can visit anytime our pantry is open, Tuesday-Friday.
 

Beginning January 1, 2023, all shoppers will be asked to provide verification of household size.
 

Shoppers will only be given points to shop in the pantry for those household members for whom we have received the required verification.  The verification process is expected to take approximately 5-10 minutes per shopper.  This will be a one-time verification -- after you have completed it, you will simply check in and shop as normal on any subsequent visits to the pantry.
 

On their first visit to the Just Food pantry after January 1st, each shopper will be asked to provide the following:
 

  • A completed Shopper Enrollment and Verification Form

 

  • Verification for all household members.  Acceptable forms of verification include (but are not limited to):

 

  • Driver's License

  • State ID

  • Birth Certificate

  • Custody Order

  • School Enrollment Verification

  • Pediatric / Medical Record

  • Vaccination Record

  • Foster Care Paperwork

  • Guidance Counselor Letter

  • Social Worker/Case Manager Letter

  • Shelter ID

  • Insurance Card

  • Benefits Card

  • Native American Tribal ID 

  • Green Card

 

  • A completed and signed proxy authorization form allowing another person to shop for you (if applicable).
