Any resident of the Peak-to-Peak Community who is in need can use the Nederland Food Pantry and/or the Nederland Clothing Closet. Both the Pantry (Room 106) and the Closet (Room 101) are located in the West Wing of the Nederland Community Center. We are open from 10 am until 12 Noon the first and last Thursday of each month and each Saturday of the month.
On the first and last Thursdays of each month we ask clients to enter through the multi-purpose room located on the upper floor of the Community Center. On Saturdays, we ask clients to use the rear West Wing entrance located on the upper level parking lot.
Food Pantry Specifics:
On your first visit, we ask you to bring proof of your home address. One or more of the current, following may be used:
- Drivers license or State identification card
- Utility bill
- Rental/lease agreement
- Pay stub with address
Should you not have one of these forms of identification, please ask to speak with our Executive Director. Periodically all clients may be asked for proof of residency.
After verification of residency, a volunteer will create a Pantry card with your name, address, phone number (if applicable) and the number of people in your household (people directly related to you). For our funding purposes, you will be asked on each subsequent visit to sign your card and the Pantry’s sign-in sheet.
The amount of non-perishable food for each client to take home s limited only by the size of the household. Non-perishable food is supplemented by choices of proteins, bread and fresh produce. For those clients on medically restricted diets, we try to offer a small selection of non-perishable foods as well.
When resources permit, the pantry strives to provide a supplemental “Camper Bag” to those spending time in our neighboring forest on a monthly basis. Visitors are asked to provide a current picture ID and sign our Camper Registration log.
Clothing Closet Specifics:
While all items are free – We ask our clothing closet clients to limit their shopping to one bag per visit
