Through purchases from local food sources – grocers, butchers, egg producers and farmers.
Through the generous donations of local individuals and families who bring us wonderful donations of foodstuffs of all kinds. This is a specially appreciated gift of fresh produce during harvest season for local farmers and home produce gardeners.
Please feel free to bring us your food donations any time!
In addition to the day-in/day-out operation of the Food Bank, our staff and team of volunteers work to to meet the special needs in of the community. A great example is our Christmas Sharing program.
Christmas is definitely a time of special needs for the disadvantaged in the community. CHSN works with several volunteers and organizations to deliver “Christmas Sharing,” a Christmas food hamper and gifts for families in need.
