GVSDA Community SERVICES 

Adventist Community Services helps meet people’s  need of food by partnering with Harvester's The Community Food Network at the church on the 3rd Monday of each month.  Anyone with a perceived need for food is welcome to receive food by bringing their vehicle and be in line between 7 and 8:30.  We ask that you follow simple safety rules which are stay in your car, have your trunk lid open and cleaned out in order to hold the food being provided. We also try to avoid putting food in the passenger compartment of your vehicle to comply with the 6 foot CDCP guidelines for close contact.

FOR OUR VOLUNTEERS SAFETY, WE ASK THAT YOU STOP AT EACH SAFETY CONE AND PUT YOUR TRANSMISSION IN PARK TO PREVENT ROLLING FORWARD. THE VOLUNTEER AT EACH STATION WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN IT IS SAFE FOR YOU TO PULL FORWARD TO THE NEXT SAFETY CONE. 

No qualifying.  be a person or family in need of temporary food assistance.  Sign in with your name, zip code, and phone number in case we need to cancel, and the number of adults (18-64), Children (birth to 17), and Seniors (65+) in your household.  Food is distributed per household, not the number of people in a household.  We ask that you be honest in signing up only for the number of households receiving food.  (IN JUNE, EACH FAMILY AVERAGED 153.5 POUNDS OF FOOD).  We also ask that if you cannot use all that you receive, you share with family, friends and neighbors or take the time to preserve it through canning or freezing.  Also that you not try to make a profit by selling food that you receive for free.  We also ask that if you pick up at our church distribution (on the third Monday of each month, you give others in need, the opportunity to pick up at other locations.
