Give the gift of food! We provide food assistance through our on-site food pantry to individuals and families who are facing financial crises.

The number of people utilizing food pantries is growing due to record COVID-19 disruptions, unemployment, and rising food prices. Food bank visits are increasingly made by folks who have not previously needed any social service programs.
