SENIOR MOBILE PANTRY
There are a lot of ill and elderly people who request food assistance. It is hard or impossible for many to get out on their own. With continuing food insecurity and demand for food assistance, the Mobile Pantry allows the Village Family another avenue to reach families and individuals that are unable to get to the food pantry. Village Family is seeking to provide a Mobile Pantry that will enable hungry individuals to access to a greater array of fresh, nutritious and healthy products. The Village Family Mobile Food Pantry Program will allow us to deliver and distribute fresh, healthy food directly into the communities that need it. We also accommodate accordingly on an emergency basis. Food boxes contain a five-day supply for a family of four.
FOOD4KIDS YEAR ROUND
This is designed for children in areas that are at risk for hunger over the summer months. Typically these are children who receive free or reduce priced school meals during the school year but are left without this reliable food source during the summer months.
Village Family provides free clothes, shoes, winter jackets, school supplies, personal hygiene items and more every month throughout the year. We often assist children, the elderly, babies, single moms and the working poor. Examples of what may be distributed include high quality clothing, accessories, shoes, work attire, winter attire, boots, personal supplies, and even books.
NEW DISTRIBUTION CENTER
If you’ve visited, you’ve noticed that we have grown. We have maxed out the distribution capacity of our space. A new distribution site is needed in order to continue to fulfil our mission.
A Larger distribution site will help us accomplish vital goals:
Increase distribution capacity
Expand our ability to stock and distribute fresh fruits and vegetables and nutritious frozen meat
More efficient and comfortable volunteer workspace

BACK TO SCHOOL
Kids go to school on the first day of school with no supplies at all. It’s hard for kids if their parents can’t afford the needed supplies. Back-to-school shopping can take a bite out of any family’s budget, but for many children there is no money for food or supplies – not even paper and pencils. That’s where the Village Family Food and Community Partners come in to help.
Village Family relies heavily on donations and contributions from the community. Due to Pandemic and for safety reasons Village Family is only accepting new items. Donations are needed and can make a big difference in the lives of seniors, children and adults.
