**New Food Pick-up & Delivery Distribution Procedures
On June 2nd, the Ocean Shores Food Bank will begin opening every Thursday afternoon from 1:00 to 5:00 (except Thanksgiving). If your grocery budget is limited or spent on other needs, come and shop indoors with us. No more lining up for drive-through where the pre-bagged choices are ours. Now, the choices are yours. Like a grocery store, browse the shelves and choose the items and quantities your family needs. Anything from pasta to produce, canned corn to cereal, rice to Ramen. And don’t forget your dogs and cats. Oh, and if possible, please, bring your reusable bags. Parking is available in the parking lot. We recommend that you do not park on the street.
Also of note: Beginning June 2nd, 2022, emergency food will now be available only Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10:00 am to noon. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday hours for emergency food are being discontinued.
