We partner with local grocery stores, food banks, churches, and a food rescue to give food away weekly to those in need and the community. Time and time again our services have impacted lives and we are incredibly thankful for the opportunity to bless others. Click below to view upcoming food giveaways or opportunities to get involved.
For those who are unable to drive or have difficulty accessing transportation, we provide a weekly food delivery service. When pallets of food arrive at our location, we first put together food items to fulfill these needs before distributing the rest of the food. If you are in need of food delivery services, please click below to request these services.
Sweet Teen Hygiene Program
It’s easy to overlook the luxury of having shampoo, deodorant, and feminine hygiene products. Many teens and adolescents do not have access or can’t afford basic hygiene items. We partner with schools and social workers to help provide these products to those who need it most. If you’re interested in donating items, you can view what items we are currently in need of here as well as information about dropping them off. If you would like to contact us about this program, please contact us today.

Did you know a coat donation can help a child in your community stay warm this winter?
