Other Programs

School Kids Emergency Assistance
Our School Kids Emergency Assistance Program provides emergency food assistance to Title 1 schools in the area. These bags are handed out by the school counselors during the school year. The bag has enough food to get them through a weekend or holiday and a note encouraging them to come to the food pantry.

Summer Food Program
Many low income families have children who receive 2 free meals each school day. During the summer months, we provide a small bag of kid friendly foods for each school aged child in the family.

We always need and welcome sponsors to help
subsidize our program costs.
