Addressing Food Insecurity

The rising cost of food as well as the reduction of SNAP benefits have had a tremendous impact on our community as well as United Community’s capacity to purchase food for distribution. Food donations are needed to continue to support distribution at the food pantry, 6 mobile sites and delivery to home-bound neighbors.
