MCS PARTNER

Providing a variety of high-quality foods and household supplies, Merrick's Food Shelf is dedicated to connecting families and individuals with community resources to help eliminate the long-term causes of hunger.

To promote fairness and efficiency, we ask eligible participants to enter their name into a drawing 30 minutes prior to each day's Food Shelf distribution. Please do not arrive earlier, as we guarantee that we will provide service for up to fifty households per distribution. On many occasions, it may be possible to serve more.  If your household is not called during distribution, please return on our next business day.
