Services are available to the first 20 households and 5 shelter clients during each time slot. We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the doors open to get in line. Diapers only: No appointment needed.
Our food pantry is stocked with groceries like canned vegetables and fruit, boxes of pasta, bags of rice. When available, we love to offer fresh food and other perishable items like eggs, vegetables, and casseroles.
Choice is important at UMD, so we encourage you to pick your own groceries. If you don’t have access to a stove for cooking, we can provide you with options that don’t require heating. Just let us know!
