Providing Healthy Food Choices

Our hybrid model now offers choice options with prepackaged groceries, including fresh vegetables and fruits, grains, dairy, and protein. We provide an average of 5 to 10 pounds of meat and fish as well as other items like cooking oil, juice, bread, and special meals/snacks.

Expectant Moms

We invite you to make an appointment to receive food and a one-time welcome package of newborn diapers for your expectant baby. Note: You must provide a sonogram or official doctor’s note as one-time proof.
