  • Description: Hunger makes everything seems more challenging. Children can’t focus on schoolwork. Parents can’t focus on finding a job or succeeding at work, and caring for family seems difficult when the basics like food can’t be provided. For those times when circumstances – like medical expenses or layoffs – leave little for groceries, we’re here with the needed nutritious food and resources to get individuals and families back on their feet. We provide food, organizational and technical support to a countywide network of Partner Food Agencies of emergency food box pantries, soup kitchens, group meal sites and a gleaner group. There are 25 partner agencies total: 13 pantries, two soup kitchens, nine group meal sits and one gleaner group. We work hard to ensure that boxes/meals are healthy and have a variety of good food groups including fresh fruits and vegetables, protein, cereals and grains.
