  • IFM is open and continuing with our normal distribution schedule of Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am-1pm, as well as the Food Access Saturday program each second Saturday of the month 10am-12pm.
We have made significant changes to our food distribution process, adjusting it to a curbside / drive-through process. This means that clients will not be getting out of their cars, the distribution team will build pre-packaged bags for easy distribution, and we'll limit the number of Ask For items as low as possible. We will go through the process in more detail each morning before we open for distribution.Volunteers are our #1 asset. Please PLEASE stay home if you are at all uncomfortable with coming into IFM to volunteer! Or if your health is compromised in any way. The peace of mind of you (and your loved ones telling you to stay home!) is the most important thing. So please don't feel bad if you decide not to come in.

This does mean that we URGENTLY need additional volunteer help at IFM, especially during Distribution Days (M, W, F, volunteer hours = 8am-2pm, it is OK if you can only come for part of the time), as well as during Packing / Sorting Days (T, Th, Vol hours = 8am-11am). No need to contact us to volunteer .... just show up! Training is provided on the spot!! We are located at 440 Henderson St in GV, to the left of the Bowling Alley and the Beam Center.
