Please Update Your Record with US

As we return to indoor distribution with more choice for our guests, we would like to update everyone’s records.  Please note that your income must meet federal guidelines to receive food on a regular basis.  These numbers are posted at the check in desk. Your weekly signature as we return to indoor distribution is your verification that you are eligible. It is helpful for our holiday planning if we have correct birthdates for children.  We would also like to know if the number of people in your household has increased or decreased. Please review your records in our computer when you are talking to the check-in volunteer.

Backpack Distribution

Registered clients, who have children between the ages of 5 and 14, will be able to choose a new backpack for each child in that age range on Aug 6th and Aug 13th. You will register and receive your food first. When registering, you will be given a backpack ticket stating how many and in which age range(s) you need, based on the children included in your family when you registered with us. After loading your car, we will ask you to re-park it and return inside the front doors to claim your new backpack(s) which will have some school supplies inside. They are provided through the efforts of a local Boy Scout who is working on his Eagle Scout award with this project. Backpacks with be given only to the children of registered clients on August 6th and August 13th. If there are leftover backpacks, they will be distributed on a first come, first served basis on Aug 20th for children ages 5 to 14. Continue Reading

COVENANT CUPBOARD SERVICE DOG POLICY

Although Church facilities are specifically exempt from Service Dog regulations it is the policy of the Covenant Cupboard to allow these animals on site during food distributions if they are true Service animals.  No animal will be allowed on site if it exhibits vicious or uncontrollable behavior. We WILL be asking the following two questions allowed by the ADA act regarding service animals:

Where it is not obvious that the dog is a service animal, staff may ask only two specific questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform? Staff are not allowed to request any documentation for the dog, require that the dog demonstrate its task, or inquire about the nature of the person’s disability.          www.ADA.gov
