We purchase food to fill the gaps

We believe nutritious food is an essential piece of a healthy life. With this belief in mind, we purchase food at low costs to fill any nutritional gaps left by donations and USDA foods. For example, we compensate farmers to reclaim their end-of-season crops that would otherwise go unharvested.

In other instances, we purchase bulk food directly from retailers at discounted prices. These are items we receive as donations only rarely, but ones our agency partners desperately need — such as shelf-stable snacks for backpack programs.

Grantors, business and individual donors, make this possible.
