Special Assistance

Senior Box Program:

From 9:00am to 1:00pm on the SECOND Thursday of each month, we help those 60 and wiser with special food boxes designed to last approximately 1 week. The sponsoring institute is an equal opportunity provider, and during this time we do remain open to all other Clients.

Help with Food Stamps:

Are you enrolled in the SNAP Program and have a question?  Interested in just learning more, or not sure if you're eligible? We now have staff trained on SNAP to help you during our normal shopping hours. Don't go hungry - make it a point to stop by and get answers to the help you deserve.

Help with Rent & Utilities:

Each Tuesday from 9:00am - 10:00am, we may assist Clients living in Ponca City, Kaw City, Shidler, Marland, and Red Rock with periodic rent and utility needs on a limited first-come, first-served basis. We may also consider Clients living in Newkirk, if they have a referral from the United Methodist Church in Newkirk. Check out some other requirements on our FOR CLIENTS webpage, then simply call or stop by.
