We see people everyday who don’t have enough food for their family. It is our conviction and heart that no one should have to be hungry in our community. Because you provide, we can give. Because so many have asked, here are some suggested ways to help:
Food Provided Daily
We provide food six days a week, to families in need – and any other time we are here when there is an emergency. We provide each family enough food to last between 3 to 5 days, based on their family size. Your gifts of food makes such a difference.
|Powdered Milk||Breakfast Cereal||Jelly or Jams|
|Canned Vegetables||Canned Fruits||Pasta|
|Canned Soups||Crackers||Tomato Sauce|
|Macaroni & Cheese||Juice Bottles & Boxes||Ensure Drinks|
|Hamburger||Tuna Helper||Baking Items|
|Four, Sugar, etc.||Snack Items||Bread, all types|
|Tuna, Chicken||Vienna Sausages||Spam, etc.|
Food for the Thanksgiving Season
Last year we helped 6,324 families (25,684 people) on Thanksgiving day. It took 5,200 turkeys to make that work for our community. Your support with Thanksgiving food makes such a difference. Thank you.
|Turkeys||Rolls||Macaroni & cheese|
|Boxed/Mashed Potatoes||Tuna||Peanut Butter|
|Canned Sweet Potatoes||Canned Fruits||Vegetables|

If you are looking for a way that your group can contribute, “Food Bags” are great for schools, corporate volunteers, scout troops, civic clubs and more. Here is a suggested approach:
|4 cans of vegetables||1 snack||2 cans of meat (chicken, tuna, etc)|
|Packaged dinner item||1 can of fruit||1 can of soup|
|Handful of crackers||1 tube of crackers||1 can of tomato sauce|
|Condiment||1 drink item (juice, etc)||Baking item (flour, sugar, etc.)|
|Peanut Butter||Breakfast item||Jelly|
|1 sliced bread||2 additional types of bread||1 dessert item|
