Making Our Community Stronger

"I'm a hands-on person. I'm not just writing a check. I'm looking at where I'm going to get the biggest bang for my buck. When I go to the Food Bank and see the food coming in and going out, when I see the people at food pantries getting what they need so their family can have a good meal, I see the difference I'm making with my donation."

-- Linda Ward, Food Bank supporter

Taking Care of Families

"We have struggled for four-and-a-half years. My paycheck is barely enough to cover rent and diapers. We're finally at a decent place, but it wouldn't have happened without help. If we didn't have the food pantry, our girls would be hungry sometimes."

-- Jennifer Montecalvo, food pantry client
