HELP FOR THE FUTURE
We're blessed to be able to serve our community. It is our goal never to have to turn people away from food that they need. This is, however, controlled by the amount of food on hand. If we're unable to help assist you, we will provide you with a list of agencies in the community that may be able to help!
Food and Nutrition Services (formerly called Food Stamps), may be able to help you buy food and free up resources for other items, such as utilities and medicine.
To receive FNS assistance, households must meet income limits. You may be able to get assistance even if you own a home, car, land, property, or have a retirement plan or money in the bank. Use the link below to be redirected to The Second Harvest Food Bank website, where they will help you apply for benefits.
FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AND INFANTS
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides food, health care referrals, and nutrition education for eligible pregnant, breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, as well as infants and children up to age five.
Making up for the meals your kids are able to get at low or no cost during the school can be a challenge. Free summer meals are available for children (age 18 and under) when school is out.
No registration and no IDs are required.
