What should I expect when I come to the PNC for food or services?

During the COVID crisis, the PNC has remained available to our neighbors who need food, baby items, pet food and personal hygiene items. We are open from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. To protect the public and our stuff, we are offering curb-side style services. Donations are accepted during those hours.

When you pull in, stop at the first set of double doors (pictured here with our Social Services Coordinator, Abby, waving hello!) to check in.

All clients are asked to wear masks when visiting the PNC!

We'll also ask you for your preferences based on what we have to offer that day (for example: what type of meat would you like). If you have specific dietary restrictions, please notify us at check-in and we will do our best to provide you with appropriate items.

Once you are checked in, we'll send you down to the next door for pickup of your items (Pictured here with Abby distributing one of our boxes of food).

If you are in need of assistance with services such as utilities, SNAP benefits, or unemployment, please contact our Social Services Coordinator at 860-599-3285, ext 103 or email
