Why We Help

Childhood hunger and trauma expose children to risk of developmental, emotional and educational delays that can last a lifetime. Our programs make a positive impact on the health and well-being of children in our community.

What We Do

We provide tangible basic needs directly to children and families in need. We distribute food, fresh produce, formula, baby food, comfort items, hygiene products, school supplies, diapers, clothing, shoes, books, baby accessories and baby equipment.
