Food

Before there can be a conversation on possibilities and potential, we must provide food. It is the single most important foundational element linking all people.

Connection

Addressing hunger allows us to have conversations on other issues affecting individuals, families and communities to help create stability and self-reliance for those in need.

Hope

By connecting those in need to services that create stability, we work to determine the root causes of hunger and poverty and build hope in our community.
