Hunger has many different faces. Women, children, mothers, fathers, infants and the elderly. Hunger doesn't discriminate. It doesn't care where you live or what you look like. Many hard working people living week to week are just a paycheck away from needing help. No one should ever go hungry but many people do. That's why we do what we do. We are a 100% volunteer organization dedicated to feeding hunger.
Help us help others. Please support your local food cupboard.
We are currently in need of the following items:
Spaghetti Sauce Canned Pasta Noodles & Rice Sides
Potato Sides Hearty Soups Heat & Serve Soups
Canned Fruit Shelf Milk
