This year we are hoping to expand our outreach. If your family could benefit from a box of free food monthly, please stop by to grab a pre-filled box with a variety of fresh, frozen, and self-stable food. This curbside pickup is offered the 3rd Wednesday each month (Oct. 19) outside of the Mallett School Cafeteria from 3:30 – 5 p.m.

Please note anyone can pick up, we are not the food police. All families are anonymous and confidential. Whether you just need a little extra help this month or you’d like to become a monthly family stop by and give us a try. We’d love to have you! Know someone in need?  Grab a box for a friend!
