This rating was published 05/01/2019 and includes data from FY2017, the most recent 990 received at that time.

We operate two client-choice food pantries, where low-income, working poor and families in crisis can receive a 7-9 day supply of groceries for their household size. Clients also receive clothing, hygiene items, diapers and housewares. Every visitor meets with a Client Service Specialist to assess their particular situation. Clients are screened for programs like SNAP (food stamps) and applications are completed, if applicable. Clients are also given appropriate referrals. Additionally, we offer employment resources by way of updated job postings, access to a computer classroom and an agent from Heartland Workforce Solutions, and employers who come in to promote employment opportunities. At Thanksgiving, we provide families with whole turkeys and all the fixings for a holiday feast. At Christmas, parents can register to receive brand-new toys for their children, along with wrapping paper, stocking stuffers and a holiday meal pantry. We also have a community garden at our main pantry.
