The Soul Food Cafe' Mission's food box distribution is a three step process. Listed below are the three steps...
When You Arrive
After the doors have opened at 9 am, we invite you to come in and go to the administration table. After you check in through our computer system, you can go to the ticket table. Tickets are available for Health & Beauty Aids, clothing pantry, Hot meal, and Food box. We also have free hair cuts as well as a slip to fill out if you are in need of household items like furniture and appliances. We serve a complementary continental breakfast with flavored coffe or tea. Just relax and enjoy the refreshments as you watch for your number from the desired assistance area you need. Guests who arrive in the afternoon should be aware that after 3 pm we are not giving out any more tickets in order to fill all the orders that have come in and clean up.
Look for your numbers to be displayed on the display. Numbers are also announced over the PA system. Come to the area site when your number has been called and displayed for that particular benefit (health & beauty aid, clothing, hot meal, etc...).
Receiving Your Food Box
At 1pm we will call the Food Box numbers. If you leave the premises during the day, you must return before 3 pm to receive your food box, even if you already have your red ticket. Around 1pm, someone will call your red ticket number. Please come up to the front when your number is called and trade your red ticket for a number that you will give to the volunteer taking those in the food box distribution area outside. You may go out to your car at this time and drive through the food box distribution lane. Present your number and they will load your food box(es) for you.
