Qualifying for Assistance. If a family qualifies for SNAP benefits, they can receive assistance from Glen-Ed Pantry after going through the application process. This begins by calling 61-656-7506. If a family has a special situation or particular hardship, they should call the pantry- we are here to help.
Food Shopping. Families can shop for food inside the pantry, through curbside pick-up of ordered bags if needed and in certain instances food may be delivered. Both pantry food shopping and SNAP benefits can be used by qualified families. Shopping is monthly plus clients may come in every Wednesday to select fresh fruits, vegetables and bread.
Clothing and Housewares. Shopping at the Second Chance Shop (donated clothing and housewares) can be done as often as needed by qualified families during regular pantry hours.
