How do I get food at SACA?
When you come to SACA for the first time, we’ll ask you some basic questions about you and the people who live with you. We’ll ask for your name and address (if you don’t have an address, that’s okay!) and also ask you to tell us if you meet the income guidelines. We don’t ever ask for photo ID or proof of income when you come to SACA for food.
If you qualify to get food, you’ll be able to choose from a mix of fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, dairy, meat, eggs, and a variety of canned and boxed goods when you shop in our food pantry. We often have personal care items like shampoo, toilet paper, and toothpaste, too. You can to come to SACA once a week to shop for what you and your family need—everything is always free.
Do I need to bring anything?
No. You do not need to bring any ID or proof of income to get food.
