I am on a fixed income and I only get 156.00 in food stamps a month and it's just not enough to live on when you are on a special diet so this really helps me a lot...Thank you so much!!!!

Our family has been going through rough times as of late. We found ourselves depending on local food pantries as our only source of food. This is what led us to Food Finders. We made our first Food Finders Mobile Pantry in September. The food they provided was far better than we had anticipated and the volunteers were very kind. The food provided was enough to make meals and was nutritious; providing a balance of all the food groups. We got a few snacks too which was nice. Thank you!

I am one of those who have to choose between buying food or buying medicine. Food Finders Food Bank has been a God-send for me!! I now can focus on buying my medicine knowing I will have food. What a blessing they are to me and others like me!!

Food Finders has helped keep our family fed in our hard times. With the lack of rain this summer my husband lost a lot of work and so we struggled and had to turn to food pantries for some of our grocery needs. If it wasn't for food finders I don't know what we would have done!!!
