Food Resources

Can hunger affect a child's school performance? Can hunger affect a child's behavior?
The answer is yes.
Not only does hunger affect these areas but research has shown that it affects concentration & learning.
Access to nutritious foods in our community can help families not worry
about where will the next meal come from and also help children stay focused in the classroom,
enabling them to be more successful.

 

Below you will find agencies and programs that provide access to healthy foods for families at no cost.
