Every year our community come together and donated truck loads of food to help our community in need! So many in our community are struggling to meet their basic needs, and facing hunger on a daily basis. Our Food Bank served over 105,000 families in 2019!  With the support of our community, we are able to continue serving our families that uses our Food Bank service. We are so grateful to everyone who donated food and volunteered their time during the food drive. We couldn't have done it alone. This is only possible from the generous donations from our community, churches, schools, and local businesses. A heartfelt THANK YOU for supporting our community!
