 The first 120 clients that visit the food closet beginning at 10:00am will receive a reservation card with a number and food group. Clients are asked to return to the food closet at the time that their food group is being served. If you return sooner, you may be turned away. If you return later you may be turned away.
At 1:00pm, any client that received a reservation card but missed their time slot, can return to see if we can accomodate them after all other reservations are distributed. Alteratly you can call at 1:00pm and if our answering machine is on, we have run out of food and have stopped serving for the day.  Please plan to come the next distribution day.
 
If the barricades are closed, we have closed for the day. Do not go around the barricades or break through the ropes. You will not be served.
Please return the next distribution day to receive food.
Clients are not allowed to park and wait in our parking lot or any of the parking lots of our neighboring businesses. If you are found to be doing so, you will be asked to leave, without a distribution, and asked to return the next distribution day. Clients are NOT allowed to wait on San Juan Ave. The traffic lanes are for moving cars. If you are stopped in any of the lanes on San Juan Ave. you are subject to a traffic citation from the Citrus Heights police.
