We remain strong and continue to meet people’s most basic needs while safeguarding health during this time of increased need. The people we serve are being hit hardest while our economy continues to recover. We expect that some neighbors will need to visit our food pantry for the first time. 

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