During the last three years, we have seen a steady increase in demand for emergency food. Our fund development team works diligently to identify new sources of funding. Like most non-profit organizations, the current economic climate has been challenging and we are stepping in to serve more clients as government safety net programs continue to be drastically cut.

We welcome and sincerely appreciate the opportunity to apply for grants offered by your company or foundation.
