Village of Downs Food Pantry
The Village of Downs Food Pantry's mission is to serve the people of Tri-Valley School District who need food assistance by providing monthly food boxes and to be on call to assist in any emergency that involves a need for food and emotional support.
Food boxes are distributed during the first Friday and Saturday after the first Monday of each month barring holidays when the distribution is usually the following week. Distribution hours are from 10:00 a.m. until Noon. The Food Pantry is in the Youth Center located at the Washington St. entrance to Dooley Park.
