In the midst of this unprecedented circumstance, we are working to fulfill the rising needs and costs of our programs to ensure essential nutrition is available to our home-bound seniors, children, and families who do not have access to meals.

At this critical time, we need the community’s support to feed those in need. We are grateful to have received a $50,000, $1:$1 match from The Steven and Natalee Herrig Family Foundation for Emergency Relief.
