DCP operates an emergency food box pantry program in Washington and Hancock counties. DCP staff and people who work with the community are encouraged to keep a box in their car or office where they serve people.
- Each box is self-containing and does not need other food on hand such as milk, butter, or meat products.
- The boxes are designed to feed a family of three, for up to four days, and are shelf-stable.
To receive a box please choose your county and contact person accordingly.
