About the shop

The Necessary Shop is Heart, Love & Soul’s necessity store for essential items such as household cleaning supplies and personal hygiene products. Once a month, guests registered in the pantry receive a referral slip to browse the Shop and select the items they need, including laundry detergent, toilet paper, toothbrushes, shaving razors, and more.

The Necessary Shop helps to supplement SNAP benefits (food stamps) by supplying our guests with important non-food necessities, which are not eligible for purchase under that program. We recognize that providing access to these supplies – which can be hard to come by – is a major part of improving quality of life for low-income individuals.


The Necessary Shop and food pantry run together Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 1:00pm. If a guest cannot make that timeframe, we will try to accommodate their availability as much as possible.

We strongly recommend making an appointment to visit the shop but will take walk-ins if possible. However, guests who arrive with an appointment will be served before others.
