We are open.

The needs of our community will continue.

We are committed to remaining strong and continuing to meet people’s most basic needs while safeguarding health during this time of increased need. We know those we serve will be hit hardest as our economy continues to recover. We expect that some neighbors may need to visit our food pantry for the first time. 

We want our community to know: We are here for those who are hungry.
