Once eligibility is confirmed by the Portage Township Trustee's office, clients may come to the pantry once a month for one year for help as long as the client continues to meet the requirements and follows the rules.

  
>>You must be a Portage Twp. resident and approved yearly by the Portage Twp. Trustee (3484 Airport Rd., immediately East of the High School) in order to receive assistance.

>>You will receive a numbered card upon arrival. Place the card under the windshield wiper on the driver's side. 
>>Park in designated spaces only. 
>>Wait in your vehicle until your number is called. (Absolutely NO waiting inside the church or standing in line in the parking lot.)

>>When your number is called you will enter the church and check in at either the new or returning tables for your voucher. Bring the numbered card with you and hand it to the volunteer taking your information.

>>The volunteer will have you sign a form then hand you a voucher which you must keep ready at all times; volunteers will ask to look at your voucher as you travel around the room in order offer you the appropriate amount of food. (If you bring children keep them with you AT ALL TIMES! The church is not a play area. Your cooperation is expected.)

>>A volunteer will collect your voucher when finished.

>>NO SMOKING on church premises – PERIOD! This includes the parking lot.

>>Smoke in your vehicle only.

>>Please do not throw cigarette butts and/or trash on church property.

>>NO cell phone usage inside church.


The First Presbyterian Church is graciously allowing us to use their facility until a new pantry building can be constructed which should hopefully be done by December 2019. They have made certain requests (ex: no carts) and our new distribution methods are devised to honor these requests. This is a work in progress so some changes may be made as we see what does and doesn't work. We need everyone's cooperation if we are to maintain a Portage Twp. Food Pantry. 

PLEASE RESPECT THE CHURCH PROPERTY!!    THANK YOU!


SCHEDULE

We are normally open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the first, third, and fourth
Fridays of the month.  The second Friday we are closed but will open the Wednesday before from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.  When a month has five Fridays then we are normally closed on that fifth Friday unless specifically stated otherwise.
