On your first visit, please arrive by the time the pantry first opens in the morning in order to register as a new participant and receive the complete program orientation. We request official photo identification of first-time participants as well as identification for each additional household member showing that all are living at the same address. Please bring birth certificates for minor children. You will also need to bring acceptable proof of residency. A driver’s license is not considered acceptable proof of residency. Acceptable proof of residency must be official mail with your name on it and delivered to your address within the last 30 days. Examples include payroll check stubs, utility or telephone bills, credit card bills, bank statements, mortgage bill, government benefits check, current year jury summons, current year property tax bill or motor vehicle registration. You may visit the SOVA pantry once in each calendar month and receive groceries for all eligible household members. Grocery orders are sized according to the number of household members. If you are homeless and do not have refrigeration and/or cooking facilities, you may visit twice each month. Please inform the SOVA volunteer of special dietary requirements so that your order can be packed appropriately (example: no meat, no pork, low salt, low sugar, Kosher, etc.).
