Our mission is to provide food and fellowship to those in need and educate our community about hunger and poverty.  



We provide enough food for over 1 million meals each year.  This includes home-style meals served each day at one of our 9 meal sites, and groceries are available each week at one of our 5 food pantries.  We are an interfaith ministry, with all locations hosted by faith communities.

Give to the Spring Appeal.


Please note:  Our current operations are as follows:  

Our food pantries are open with drive-up service,
and all of our meal sites are temporarily closed.
