Any community member is eligible to receive groceries. All information is confidential and no income information is needed to pickup groceries from the food bank.
The food bank continues to be the door that opens to assist with weekly groceries to help make ends meet with critical needs such as rental & mortgage assistance, utility bills, navigating Medicare and Medicaid (aka Apple Health) and more. Free case management or counseling, referrals, and resources are available by phone appointment.
When life's biggest challenges impact, Helpline House can help people weather crisis and rebuild their lives with professional and confidential support.
