What do I need to bring to sign up?
– ID for everyone in the household (including children)
We accept driver’s licenses, social security cards, birth certificates, passports, Green cards, school IDs and/or health insurance cards as long as they show a full name and a birth date. You can bring copies and we do not make or keep any copies of your ID. You do not have to be a legal citizen to receive services. We do not ask for or record your social security number or driver’s license number.
– Income verification for everyone in the household who works or receives any benefits (Social Security, retirement, disability, unemployment, etc.)
We accept bank statements, paystubs, award letters, and tax returns. You can show copies or even digital statements on your phone. If you have no income, you will simply sign a piece of paper stating that you have no income at this time. If this changes, please let us know. We verify your income once a year every year in July.
– Proof of address
We accept any piece of mail sent to you at your address such as a PG&E bill or City of Tracy water bill. We do not accept your driver’s license as proof of address. You will be asked to show proof of address EVERY TIME you receive services.
How often can I come?
Once you are signed up, you can come for food and clothing once a week. You do not have to come on the same day of the week as long as you only come once a week.
