How does it work? Choices, Choices, Choices. Giving you the choices that will help you meet your food needs. Participants are able to fill a grocery basket with fresh and close-dated food items that are presented in a farmers’ market-style layout. Going down the line, they can pick up a set number of items (determined weekly by donations), from an abundance of provision options at different food stations.   

Some of the food stations include: Fresh breads, pastries and cakes, fresh fruits and vegetables, deli, pantry items, meats, and dairy products.

We rely on food donations from grocers, wholesalers, food manufacturers, and businesses. It is with these generous donations from all of our food partners that we are able to present a large variety of fresh foods.


Most participants are able to fill a shopping basket by the time they reach the end of the line—all for a $10* Shared Maintenance Fee.
