Throughout the year we struggle to keep our pantry shelves stocked.
Clients include hard-working parents trying to feed their children, adults of all ages who may live alone on fixed incomes and multigenerational families living in one household. They are coping with food insecurities.They may not know how they'll pay for groceries or whether the items they can afford will stretch to feed everyone at the table.
