Food Pantry

** Due to unforseen maintenance our food pantry is temporarily moving to pre-packed bag only.  We will not be pulling specific items or have time slots.  You can come anytime Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 9-2.  We hope to return to normal operations as soon as possible.   Thank you for your understanding!  **

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 available to place an online order at anytime. Order pick-up times are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 9AM–2PM. The food pantry is closed Wednesdays. 

How to use the food pantry:

  1. Upon first visit at the pantry, clients will be asked to fill out an online application and upload a copy of your ID or passport. You are also required to upload a document with your current address on it (utility bill, lease, etc.).
    • Clients will choose the items they would like to receive. If it is their first time, clients will set up a username and password which they will use for each subsequent order.
  2. After placing their order, clients will receive an email confirmation.
  3. Upon arrival for their order pick-up, clients will text/call our food pantry phone number (given upon request) and state their name and order time.
  4.  During order pick-up, staff will check to see if clients are eligible for monthly pantry items (toothpaste, detergent, diapers, toilet paper, etc.)
    • If they are eligible for monthly items, they will be given a sheet to make their selections.
    • Staff will make note of client’s meat request.
  5. Clients may select items from the cart in the Government Center kitchen.
  6. Client’s order will be weighed by staff.
  7. Clients may use our cart to take items to their car and then return cart.
