The Food Bank delivers perishable food to food pantries ‘just in time’ for them to open, overcoming pantries’ barriers of inadequate transportation and storage capacity for such items. The program aims to increase access to fresh fruit, vegetables, and dairy for our neighbors in need.
“In order to truly understand their gratitude you would need to be present. On many occasions I have witnessed people crying out of gratitude for the food they received. So many people have shared with me how receiving the produce each week has helped their family have something to eat.”
