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;  groceries are available each week at one of our 5 food pantries; and frozen, microwaveable meals are prepared by our Heat & Eat kitchens.

We are an interfaith ministry, with all locations hosted by faith communities.
