We are the only permanent year-round food closet in the Foresthill area.  We serve low income families, seniors, homeless, and disabled residents of the Foresthill divide regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or religion.  This includes the foothill communities of Iowa Hill, Michigan Bluff, Baker Ranch and Yankee Jim as well as Foresthill.

Employer matching programs is one of our newest sources of funding. Many cooperations offer matching funds for donations to non-profit organizations for both current employees and retirees.
