We believe that the voices of those in need should define our work and guide our evaluation of our effectiveness.  We therefore seek ongoing feedback, guidance and involvement from those we serve. In addition, we use a community partner model to enhance access and connections to programs and resources that encourage healthy, independent lives.


Food is a powerful force in gathering together, creating trust and forming the bonds of community.  We seek to use the opportunities created around food to better understand challenges and help clear a path to stability and independence.
