Helping Our Neighbors
Live Healthy Lives

Access to nutritious food is a critical component of emotional and physical health. Food price increases of 13.1% nationally and 10.9% locally in 2022 have impacted our neighbors’ ability to purchase fresh produce, healthy proteins, personal care items and household products that they need to take care of their families. The Pantry offers a variety of programs and services to help community members live the healthiest lives that they can.
