Income-guidelines for regular food shelf use:
|Household Size||Income at or below:|
Semcac’s four food shelves provide individuals and families with a variety of nutritious food and the opportunity to stretch limited households budgets. The food shelves are sustained by donations of dollars, food and personal care items. Donations are needed year-round!
To use the food shelf, a household’s income should be at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. However, emergency food is available to any household experiencing a food crisis, regardless of household income.
