Our mission is to provide food and fellowship to those in need and educate our community about hunger and poverty.  



We provide enough food for over 1 million meals each year.  This includes home-style meals served each day at one of our 9 meal sites, and groceries are available each week at one of our 5 food pantries.  We are an interfaith ministry, with all locations hosted by faith communities.
