Food Assistance

Pile of food
Our year end numbers of those served are as follows:

  • 3,541 families received food assistance in 2021. These families were made of 10,214 individuals, including 4,095 children.
  • Of the families served with food, 88% came only once or twice. Only 2% came more than 4 times (one of the changes we made due to pandemic was to not limit families to 4 times a year).
  • Only one family needed food assistance 9 times.
  • New to us in 2020 were a tad less than 50% of the number of those served. We have not tracked this data before but this seems more than usual.
