-----------------------------------------------

*Updated December 2022: Each individual or family may receive food once EVERYOTHER week. This means a family can visit any day they choose, M, W, F, or Sa and that counts as their visit for the week. Then they must skip one week of M,W, F, or Sat Distribution Days, and then they can return on any day the following week. IFM has had to scale back how often families can visit, but they are striving to provide MORE food during each visit. This will remain in effect until further notice.

EXCEPTION: If someone is experiencing homelessness, they are able to pick up no-cook/no-fridge food ONCE per week.
