A FREE Community Lunch is served Wednesday and Friday at noon. Everyone is welcome to join us. On Sat/Sun. sack lunches are available at Goodwill on Mingus Ave. for those without a residence.
Our beautifully refurbished clothing boutique is available for our clients who are in need of gently used clothing and shoes, as well as hygiene kits which include shampoo, soap, and other toiletries.

Guests can receive one food box a week per household. They may choose items based on their personal preferences. Our food pantry is stocked with items such as canned foods, pastas, rice, breakfast items, breads, desserts, frozen foods, meats, poultry, fish and fresh produce.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a Federal program that helps supplement households with low incomes by providing an additional food resource. The food boxes contain non-perishable items such as canned fruits/vegetables/meats, rice, pastas, beans, cereal and juice. They provide emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost.
The Old Town Mission facilitates this program. Distributed is the first week of each month during our normal food pantry hours until supplies are gone.
Valid ID and address is necessary. A form at the front desk must be signed each month to receive the food box.
There are those in our community that are without a residence temporarily due to many different circumstances. We offer showers Monday and Thursday from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m.
(*Contingent upon donations, sleeping bags, tents, backpacks, umbrellas, sunscreen, bug spray and other items may be available.)
We have a mini salon at the mission designed specifically for haircuts.
A licensed stylist is onsite twice a month and provides haircuts free of charge for our clients. No appointment is necessary, however, please call for the schedule because the times and dates vary each month.
Vision Clinic is offered and operated through the Lions Club. This takes place on the first Tuesday of each month at 10am. They offer free vision exams and low cost eyeglasses. A short application is required and can be picked up at the Old Town Mission during regular business hours.
Legal professionals offer FREE consultation concerning a variety of legal matters. There is no appointment needed.
Please bring all necessary paperwork and questions with you. The clinic is held at the Old Town Mission every fourth Tuesday of each month at 6pm.

Meet Will, our “Grocery Rescue Agent”.
Will is out & about during the week working tirelessly to gather the food that has been donated by local stores and restaurants, much of which is overstock or near expiration, thereby stocking our food pantry with these items.
He is the man in the middle bridging the gap between caring neighbors sharing their resources with our neighbors in need.
This generosity of our local partners extends to the hearts and lives of many people in our community.
Please contact the mission if you would like to be a part of this program.
