Children's Summer Food Program
In the months of July and August, households with school-age children receive an extra food bank visit to help offset the loss free/reduced price breakfasts and lunches offered at school.
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 2015, 600 children received packs. Flyer
In both November and December, customers receive additional holiday food during one of their regular shopping visits. Thanks to generous community support, 635 Thanksgiving and 587 Christmas family meals were distributed in 2014.
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 13-15 year olds. Registered parents choose from a bounty of NEW stuffed animals, toys, clothing and more. In 2014 we were able to provide at least 3 gifts per child to grateful parents of 1074 local children.
