    4/22/2020 - COVID-19 Changes:
    DMARC is offering a delivery service to the most vulnerable in the community. 
    If a client is unable to obtain food by either coming to the pantry or using a proxy then they can call for delivery. DMARC would ask that only those with health, transportation or other mitigating circumstances use this service.   
    Clients can call 1-833-DMARC-20 (1-833-362-7220) toll free. This number will be staffed by trained volunteers and staff from 9am – 12pm Monday-Friday. Deliveries are on a first come first serve basis, capacity will depend on the number of volunteers available.     
    Once the order is placed we will deliver to the client’s doorstep with a no contact delivery method the next business day between 9am and 12pm.

    DMARC food pantry. Provides emergency help with non-perishable food items. Also, they provide a 10 pound meat give away when available. This service can only be accessed once a month. All services are first come, first serve. There is no residence boundary and financial information is not needed.  

    Starting October 1, 2020 - The Bidwell Pantry will only offer an emergency food package once a month (rather than every 7 days). This means that clients can receive up to 2 meal packages a month from our pantry:  a DMARC meal package and an Emergency Food Package.  (Reminder: A DMARC Food Package is only available once a month, no matter from which pantry you receive it.) Clients must wait 7 days between receiving food packages.
