Chelsea Foodbank

Chelsea_foodbank_logoRiverRock hosts the Chelsea Foodbank at our campus on 65 River Road. The foodbank is open every Monday from 4:30pm to 6:00pm and on Wednesdays from 10:30 to Noon. We do not require detailed documentation of need, special vouchers or proof of residency. Nobody is treated as a number or expected to prove thay are not trying to “scam the system”.

We just ask that you abide by a few simple principles:

  1. If you truly need food, come by and get some.
  2. Be honest with us, we will be honest and straight forward with you.
  3. Respect those who arrived before you by letting them go ahead of you,
  4. and respect those who come after you by not taking more food than you really need.
  5. Treat the staff with respect, grace and patience and they will do the same.
  6. Pay it forward. Help others as you are being help. Bring food, bags, spread the word, encourage local grocers to give their excess to help others, grow a garden, volunteer in the foodbank or furniture mission, etc.
