Food Help

Food Assistance/Client Choice Program

We offer bountiful and nutritious food boxes Monday- Friday from 10:00am to 3:00pm in our client-choice food room.  Families, individuals, and seniors may come to Family Service once each week (every 7 days) as their circumstances and needs require.

Every year, more than 30,000 households receive help through this program. Using a guided shopping list, based on family size, clients have the opportunity to shop for their own foods. Typical items include milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs, bread, juice, fresh produce, multiple protein selections – such as meat, fish, beans, and rice – along with non-perishables like pasta, soup, and canned goods.

We give whatever we have available at the time.
