About the program
Hardship can happen to anyone and the cost of fresh food can make it difficult for people in need to maintain a balanced diet. Local churches in partnership with LinC, have been delivering these free programs to the community for over nine years. Every Friday fresh food is available to those in need to ensure everyone has access to fresh ingredients to prepare healthy meals. Please bring your own bags.
COVID update: Please attend your closest program.
