Q: How do I qualify for the Pantry’s assistance?
A: All we require is that you are a resident of Gunnison County and that you sit down with a manager for a confidential interview. The interview simply assesses your situation so the Pantry can best help at your point of need. Please stop by the Pantry, call, text, or e-mail us to get started.
Q: My friend or neighbor needs assistance but is unable to come to the Food Pantry. Can we pick up food on their behalf?
A: Of course. We only ask that your friend or neighbor call us in advance so we can accommodate their need and pre-pack food.
Q: Do you provide food for individuals with restricted diets?
A: Yes, we can help if you have a food allergy or otherwise restricted diet. However, we only have limited supplies so please call us prior to picking up your food so we can try to accommodate your need.
Q: Do you deliver food?
A: Yes, we can deliver food to you if you have trouble leaving your home because of illness or mobility problems. Just call and arrange the delivery in advance.
Q: What if my friend or neighbor needs assistance but doesn’t understand English?
A: We can help. Our application form is offered in Spanish. On Wednesdays from 4p-7p, Spanish-speaking volunteers help those facing hunger at the Pantry.
