We have thousands of clients that come as needed throughout the year. Some come a few times a year, some once a month, and some come most every week. Clients are eligible to come weekly. We have many clients who walk and are homeless who only take what they can carry or put in their backpack, so a weekly opportunity to get some food is very helpful to them. Many seniors on fixed income also love to come weekly to get fresh vegetables, salad, bread, snacks and drinks. Once a month, clients also receive an additional food box.
New clients must bring proof of income and expenses, as well as ID for you and those in your household.
Dorothy Lowery is the founder of our food bank. Helping people that were hungry was her dream. Her most heart-stirring memory was from a poor area in the Middle East where she saw women and children pulling up grass to eat, they were so desperately hungry. She used to say that she was spreading the love of JESUS Christ and that was her main goal. She said, "Hide me behind the cross so that others will see Jesus in me.". Her hearts desire was to serve Jesus with her every breath and every action. She passed away in March 2021 at the age of 94.
We rely solely on the generous contributions of individuals, churches and businesses. Our non-profit organization is strictly 100% volunteer work. Any money donated goes to operating expenses and and food to give our clients. No amount is too small to give. All gifts are greatly appreciated and may the Lord richly bless you.
