The Need is Here & the Need is Now
Thank you to everyone who donated and helped up to raise $137,498 in 2023!
Our annual Appeal for Meals raises vital funds to support our Fresh Food Pantries, Backpack, Summer Meals, Outreach and Hot Meals programs.
Family budgets remain tight—food coming home with children through our Backpack and Fresh Food Pantry programs means nutritious meals and less stress for parents. And our Hot Meals program continues to average 7,500+ meals each month, almost double the average from January 2020.
