Fill the gap financially
Cash donations are used to supplement the food donations we receive by allowing us to purchase certain food staples.
This includes fruit and vegetables, milk, eggs, meat, bread, healthy children’s snacks, and other needed items, such as feminine hygiene products and baby food. We also use funds to run our farm site, where we grow fresh vegetables in the summer months.
Using the power of community we turn $1.00 into $5.00 worth of food!
If you would like to help, you can choose to make a donation by:
