Nourishing Network Shopping
Agency Partner shoppers self-select from a variety of purchased and donated product, including produce, dairy, meat, and other prepared food from our cooler and freezer.

Although free, produce is still weighed and invoiced, with any bulk item on its own pallet being tracked separately. All other assorted items are weighed when checking out, including shelf-stable food, beverages, non-food, dairy, and mixed retail produce.

Item numbers and quantities are recorded by agency shoppers on the sheets at the Nourishing Network desk and given to staff when they weigh out.

Remember to bring a coat and gloves; coolers and freezers are very chilly.
