We are planning a garden that can be a refuge for those who need a moment (or several) of respite. Coming to the Food Bank is stressful for many. Being able to sit in a quiet place and enjoy a bit of nature is therapeutic and will be used by clients and staff.
Interior painting and minor miscellaneous repairs are needed for the interior of the existing 3,900 square foot office building.
Our new facility will require new telephone and computer systems.
Donations of Ensure, nutritional supplements, adult diapers, toiletries for the homeless are always needed and appreciated. In addition, canned proteins like tuna, chicken, chili, stew, and soups are always in short supply.
