Food Shelf


CAP Agency’s Food Shelf provides immediate food and nutrition resources to individuals and families to help sustain them during difficult times so they can get back on their feet. Our food shelf utilizes a consumer choice model: you select the food that best suits your needs. We provide a 5-7 day supply of food once per calendar month. 

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

If you are unable to leave your home due to illness, transportation or quarantine, please let us know when you call and we will make arrangements to deliver food to your home.
