To Register For Benefits
Covenant Cupboard relies on governmental agencies plus other businesses and organizations for the food and support we give your family. Some of these organizations require us to certify residency and other information, and request periodic reports from us. Therefore, we require the following when you register, and may periodically request that you furnish updated information.
- Proof of residency – Such as a current utility bill received in the mail that shows your name and address, or a current rent receipt or lease that shows your name and address.
- Proof of Identification – An official photo ID such as: driver’s license, state ID card, green card, or other government agency form showing your birth date. You must bring your ID on every visit.
- Proof of income – Although you must meet the following income guidelines, the system is self verifying, meaning you will not be required to provide income verification documents.
