Since COVID-19 hit the U.S. hard in March of 2020, we have made significant changes to operations at the Center. Clients should know that we have temporarily suspended the “choice” program in order to keep the Northampton Survival Center community safe. Clients get food via our new “drive-thru” system shown below, and should aim to come weekly since the “monthly/weekly” system is no longer used and clients will get approximately the same amount of food each time they come.
The Northampton Survival Center, through its Goshen and Northampton locations, provides low-income residents of the community with nutritionally-balanced food packages. Our program is a “choice” program, which means that each box is custom-filled for every household.
In addition to picking up their package of groceries once a month, clients may also visit once a week to select breads and fresh produce.
Pantry hours at the Survival Center are friendly and sociable. Once clients enter the pantry, they are given a number and take turns going through a brief intake process, after which they will be served in turn by our pantry volunteers.
