Basic foodstuffs are available – canned and boxed foods. We try to provide several days supply of basic foods. We do NOT have fresh foods, fresh or frozen meat or fresh milk. We do have some canned meat.
No church affiliation or restrictions other than financial need apply. Our intent is to help those in our community who have a need; no strings attached.
