Current and Recent Events
Food Bank has a Grocery Style Shopping System
School Supply Backpack Program
Each August, we distribute sturdy, new backpacks stuffed with new, grade-level appropriate school supplies for K-12 students. Just in time for a new year of learning! In 2017, 566 children received packs.
In both November and December, customers receive additional holiday food during one of their regular shopping visits. Thanks to generous community support, 569 Thanksgiving and 501 Christmas family meals were distributed in 2016.
Children's Christmas Gift Program
Each December, we create a festive Christmas gift center filled with new, donated gifts for children, birth to 12 years of age and gift cards for 13-18 years of age (18 yr old MUST still be in school). Registered parents choose from a bounty of NEW stuffed animals, toys, clothing and more. In 2017 we were able to provide at least 3 gifts per child to grateful parents of 1076 local children.
