Welcome to the M.O.R.E. Center

Our aim is to provide support for individuals needing food, clothing and emergency financial assistance. As you visit this site, we hope you gain an insight into what we do and will get the information you are seeking.

The M.O.R.E. Food Pantry continues to be open on Wednesdays 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and Thursdays 4:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. However, for the protection of our visitors and our volunteer staff, expect longer wait times due to closely monitored social distancing. Visitors are allowed into our facility a few at a time to shop for food, while others wait in their cars for their turn to enter. Visitors may come each week until this unusual time is over. Our clothing and household items area is open Wednesdays 9:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. and Thursdays 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Emergency Financial Assistance is being done by phone and mail after an initial application is made at the Center.

Needless to say, the past two years have been stressful to this organization and I want to share some of that time with you.
