Food


As much as 2000 pounds of food are given out each week, much of which is received from a regional food bank at a fraction of normal retail pricing. The next greatest portion of donated food comes from affiliated churches, USDA, civic groups and food drives. Food donations are accepted between 10am and 4pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
