Mission Statement

Our mission is to eliminate hunger within our community, in the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor.

  • Eliminating access barriers

  • Prioritizing health

  • Prioritizing children

  • Rescuing good food from going to waste

  • Partnership and collaboration


Eliminating Access Barriers


Because not all people in need can make it to us, we ensure that food resources are available throughout our community. We accomplish this through an extensive network of satellite and mobile food banks, our FORKids school backpack program, and our Summer Lunch program.
