MODIFIED DISTRIBUTION GUIDELINES
Clients arrive by 9:00 am to receive a number. Return at 11:00 am for food distribution. Sign-in numbers will not be issued after 11:00 am. No exceptions.
COME EARLY… LEAVE EARLY
Due to the hot weather, we would like for clients to come early for distribution. When the temperature is above 90 degrees, we will adjust our hours to reflect the dangers of heat stroke.
Adjusted distribution hours during hot weather:
Sign-In: 9:00 am – 10:30 am. Distribution: 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Distribution ends at 12:30 pm. Doors close at 12:45 pm
Our distribution will provide bagged/boxed food items to reduce shared spaces.
We have created sign-in procedures that allow for social distancing.
- Only one client at inside sign-in desk at a time.
- Clients need to line up with six feet between each other.
We have created distribution attendance that allows for social distancing.
- Clients will remain in their cars until number is called.
- We will limit line management during distribution to ten (10) clients.
The Mission of the Food Program is to provide support to our clients in the form of food to supplement their nutritional needs. It is our desire to assist clients with food, to engage with them in a Christ-like manner and to support them through prayer. The program has been established to meet the needs of the community in the surrounding Meadowview and South Sacramento area.
Our community food distribution program offers food for clients weekly on Tuesdays from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon. Clients first must register their name, sign in and then they are able to obtain a number beginning at 9:00 am. Distribution is on a first come, first serve basis for everyone.
The Antioch Progressive Food Pantry is a partner with Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services, therefore,we have a set of strict guidelines to follow. The Antioch Food Program is not able to pull food for anyone. Each person in need must come and sign in individually in order to participate in the distribution of food.
The third time Jesus said to him, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love Me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love You.” Jesus said, “Feed My sheep.” – John 21:17
