Seeking to eradicate local poverty and engage some of the most basic needs of families in the communities we serve, our Community Food Banks strive to bridge the gaps that occur with food insecurity. Our food programs are designed to be a hand up and not just a hand out for the families we serve. Creating an environment where value is placed on compassion and respect and an understanding of the importance of a servants heart are a focus of our investment. These environments are perfect for community leaders to invest their time and resource to serve those who are their neighbors and also encourages those who receive help to give back by investing their time back into the community. This collaboration of local leaders help identify those in need and then apply an appropriate level of resource and love to allow for direct impact in the battle to eradicate local poverty.
