Pantry staff and volunteers will request IDENTIFICATION (ID) from the household member or proxy who is providing the signature for the receipt of commodities. You should bring ID and proof of residence, such as a utility bill. Your proof of ID can be a Driver’s license, a State ID card, another form of a picture ID, or any other form that proves identity.
