Need Help with Food?
The faces of hunger may surprise you. They may be a co-worker, your child’s friend, or the grandparent living next door. What started out as just being a summer food pantry, expanded into a year-round community food service, with the help of our urban farm and generous food donors.
Now, we are continuing our stand against hunger in the midst of COVID-19 to bring in a massive amount of food to our community, including deliveries to senior citizens.
Many families are struggling to make ends meet which can put on unnecessary strain. Residents may be forced to live under the same roof or families will often group together to try to lesson this burden.
Children who are not getting their nutritional needs met have serious additional problems that affect their lives. Chronic malnutrition can lead to an increased risk of sickness, ultimately affecting their ability to perform physically and mentally in school. Children under 5 could have developmental delays that stay with them throughout their lives.
