The D300 Food Pantry is actively participating in community-wide efforts to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus by adjusting our distribution process and schedule to limit exposure to the families we serve and our volunteers. Please help get this information out by sharing the following with any D300 families who might need food assistance. 
  • The pantry's next distribution will be Saturday, March 21 (9 a.m. to noon) 

  • The D300 Food Pantry will be closed the week of March 23

  • Going forward and until further notice, we will continue our modified distributions every other Saturday. For April, we will distribute April 4 and April 18.
