As community organizations and local partners work actively to assist those impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Harvest Stand Ministries remains committed to supporting individuals and families who need food assistance.
Food Distribution Hours will remain the same;
- Monday 9:00AM-3:00PM
- Wednesday 1:00PM-6:00PM
- Thursday 9:00AM-12:00PM
We care about our community and the overall health of our guests, volunteers, staff and extended community. We are working hard to adjust as needed, while providing the best service possible. The changes being made are as follows:
- We will remain open during our normal business hours as outlined above.
- We ask that all guests now schedule appointments to help ensure an open spot for services is available. Please schedule appointments on our website www.harveststandministries.org and by selecting the “services” tab.
- For food distribution, guests will be met in the parking lot and receive curb-side assistance, with staff providing pre-packaged food boxes. Guests will no longer enter the facility at this time for food.
- We will still be providing paper products and baby items while supplies last as normal. Bar soap will also be included in each box.
- New guests outside of our service area will be given appropriate resources and referrals to organizations in their area where they can receive food assistance.
- Clothing will still be available by appointment. We encourage all guests to schedule an appointment for both food and clothing to ensure a spot on our schedule. Appointment can be made on our website www.harveststandministries.org and by selecting the “services” tab.
