We seek to bring measure of love to our community through sharing the blessings of food and other resources with those who are in need. We strive to foster a caring atmosphere and treat each person with dignity, and care about each one as an individual. We are dedicated to maintaining a continuous growth in services to assist our guests to improve their quality of life. It is our hope that those who receive food will be strengthened in body and soul. We see in our neighbors the face of God and act with resolve to ensure that the basic needs of life are met.

Any donations of food or personal products are welcome anytime. If anyone has fresh produce they want to donate that would be great, too. Contact us if you need it picked up something can be arranged. Thank you!
