How We Can Help

Our clients come from many walks of life but they share one thing in common: they need emergency food assistance. Maybe there is a job loss, ill health, bereavement, delays in benefits or other difficult situations. If your family needs assistance or you recognize a need in your church, school, or neighborhood, please give us a call so that we may help.
