Food Shelf


CAP Agency’s Food Shelf provides immediate food and resources to individuals and families to bridge them through difficult times and help them reach self-sufficiency. Our food shelf utilizes a consumer choice model – you select the food that best suits your needs. A  5 – 7 day supply of food is provided, once within a calendar month. We also provide our food shelf customers connections to resources.

During the COVID-19 crisis, the Food Shelf will operate from 9:00am – 2:40pm Monday through Friday. 

If you are unable to leave your home due to illness, transportation or quarantine, please state this when calling and arrangements will be made to deliver food to your home.
