The Food Pantry provides literally tons of free, healthy groceries to about 500 hungry families each week. We offer fresh food without conditions, in a safe and beautiful space. The food we give helps families prepare meals in their own homes with dignity.

1. Donate Money: It costs us just one dollar to buy groceries for a family; $50 will help feed one family for an entire year!. Honor a friend, celebrate an anniversary, make a gift today!
