About BRGNS Food Shelf

Black River Good Neighbor Services’ Food Shelf is open to income-eligible residents of Ludlow, Mt. Holly, Belmont, Cavendish, Proctorsville and Plymouth. We administer U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) food distribution programs, but separate and apart from these USDA programs, we will give food to anyone who demonstrates a real need. Distribution of food is limited to any family/household to twice a month, but no matter what the circumstance we let nobody go hungry.

 

We work very hard to offer variety and balance to what we distribute to food shelf clients. Many live on a fixed income and could possibly go hungry if we did not make supplemental foods available to them. From our food shelf we distribute food through the USDA’s Emergency Food Assistance Program, which provides to food items to qualified applicants each month. We distribute this food twice a month and add a substantial amount of a balanced variety of shelf stable canned and packaged food, meats or fish, and fresh produce. We also distribute food from USDA’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program.
