    Starting October 1, 2020 - The Bidwell Pantry will only offer an emergency food package once a month (rather than every 7 days). This means that clients can receive up to 2 meal packages a month from our pantry:  a DMARC meal package and an Emergency Food Package.  (Reminder: A DMARC Food Package is only available once a month, no matter from which pantry you receive it.) Clients must wait 7 days between receiving food packages.
