Need Help? 

We are here to give food and grocery basics to those in need. We strive to treat you as we want to be treated ourselves while providing food in an atmosphere of empathy, compassion, and dignity. By supplying a reliable source of food, we hope to reduce the stress on you, our guest. This allows you to focus on resolving some other issues you may be facing. We strive to equip you with connections to other services you may need to overcome those issues. In addition, Feeding Hands will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, religion, age, or disability.
