Food Pantry

We have an onsite food pantry available for those who reside in the Hamilton Southeastern School District (Delaware, Fall Creek, Wayne Townships). The pantry is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 10AM–3PM.

  1. Upon first visit at the pantry, clients will be asked to fill out a detailed application and staff will make a copy of your ID or passport. Staff will also require a document with your current address on it (utility bill, lease, etc.).
    • Clients will be given a card with a food pantry ID number. On each subsequent visit, clients will only need to present their pantry ID number.
  2.  Staff will check to see if you are eligible for monthly pantry items (toothpaste, detergent, diapers, toilet paper, etc.)
    • If you are eligible for monthly items, you will be given a sheet to make your selections.
    • Staff will make note of client’s milk/egg/meat request.
  3. Clients may select food items from the pantry and will weigh their own bags.
  4. Clients may use our cart to take items to their car and then return cart.
