"One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility we can welcome many people." --Jean Vanier
Helping Our Community
Stories from real people from our local community.
Mother of Newborns
"Our daughter was born with multiple health issues, causing me to stay home. We depend on the food bank's generosity."
"I lost my husband and I experienced domestic abuse. We wouldn't have had food to eat without the help we received form the food bank."
Helping Our Elders
"Our social security leaves us short every month. The food bank is really important to us."
Losing a Job
"I lost my job, my home and my dignity. With the generosity of the food bank, I was able to feed my family."
