Fresh Helpings


Community Resource Service Fresh Helpings program was developed to increase the amount of healthy fresh food options to clients using food banks, food cupboards, and meal programs.  

We are always looking for community partners to play the role of donor, sponsor or volunteer. We need farmers and businesses to partner with, sponsor to purchase, and volunteers to glean and help distribute.  This project is for the community, by the community and all are welcome to participate.
