Free Food Distribution

Free food distribution is back! Join us on the second and 4th Thursdays of the month between 12:00 and 2:00 pm. Freshly-prepared healthy snacks until they’re gone.

Fresh Conversations

Come visit us for Fresh Conversations- a healthy lifestyles group geared towards seniors. We talk about things like heart health, malnutrition, and cancer prevention through a healthy diet. The group is free, and the only thing you need to bring is an appetite for a delicious food tasting.
