The May Dugan Center's Food and Clothing Program ensures a safety net for the most vulnerable individuals, families, older adults, children and veterans. through produce, food and clothing distributions.


The May Dugan Center will be providing produce & food distributions on the following days: 

  • 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month for Drive-Tru 

  • 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month for Walk-ins

We ask participants to read the full description of the process before coming to the May Dugan Center:

Walk-ins cannot be accommodated on Distribution Wednesdays, so all people are asked to drive. Cars will line up on Bridge Avenue and continue westward.

Participants will remain in their cars and food will be placed in the trunk so as to minimize contact. Participants are asked to provide sufficient trunk space for the food.

A valid driver's license or state i.d. card is all that is required to participate.

If you do not have a vehicle, you can authorize someone else (known as a proxy) to pick up food on your behalf. The person you select must have a vehicle and present a letter at the time of food distribution that contains the following information: the recipient’s name, the name of the person picking up food, the day of the distribution and the recipient’s signature. This letter can be handwritten.

If no vehicle or proxy is available, please call the May Dugan Center at 216-631-5800 x300. Other arrangements will be made to ensure food receipt. If you are connected to voicemail, please leave a message and someone will return your call as soon as possible.


Due to construction at May Dugan Center, the clothing room is currently on hiatus. 


Our greatest volunteer need at this time is for our Produce & Food Distribution Program. For more information about all the ways you can help please visit our get involved page. To learn more about corporate and group opportunities, please email Deputy Director Andy Trares at
