PHYSICAL RESOURCES DIVISION
The mission of the Community Development Center Physical Resources Division is to provide care and outreach to the surrounding communities. We believe that access to nutritious food is a basic human right. We are committed to responding to the needs of our community through food distribution and support services. Through our Food Pantry, we strive to eliminate hunger in our community and surrounding areas by acquiring and distributing food to those who seek aid. We will accomplish this mission by educating, building partnerships, empowering and enlightening the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition. Linking clients to additional social services and resources. We provide residents in need with programs that provide food, promote the value of nutrition increase self-sufficient and instill hope.
Our Food Pantry is open every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the Month.
