We’re here to help you.
You will receive groceries based on your household size. This will include pantry staples, and meat, dairy, bakery, and produce as our inventory allows. If you need baby food, please let your Intake Specialist know during your consultation.
Each member of your household will receive two complete outfits. An outfit is a top and a bottom, or a single dress. We sometimes have additional clothing items, like cold weather gear, socks, underwear, pajamas, etc. Generally, these items are one per person and the limits are determined by our Volunteer Manager.
Household items like paper products, linens, and cleaning supplies are offered as available. These are generally in extremely limited supply.
Diapers, pads and tampons, and incontinence items are available as needed. Let your intake specialist know if you need these items. Some sizes stay in short supply.
Housewares like decorative items and kitchen utensils are placed on our “free shelf” in the check-out area, and are available on a first come, first serve basis. The books and magazines in our waiting area are also considered “free” items.
Beginning May 3, 2021, every client who comes into the office at Eastside will have the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire to screen for depression or anxiety, if they choose to do so. This is not a requirement but is another service that Eastside will be providing. People with high scores for depression or anxiety will be offered appointments for counseling at Eastside free of charge.
