Get Food


Everyone should have access to the nutritious foods they need to live a healthy, productive life. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of living, too many people in our community are not getting enough nutritious food to eat.

The Food Bank provides food to people in need where they live, learn, and work. Call us today to be connected with free food resources.
