Crisis Assistance

Our Crisis Assistance program provides a ten-pound bag of shelf-stable food on a walk-in basis to those in need of emergency food assistance. This program provides immediate relief during the day or two before the family accesses our member agency food pantries and CHFB in-house programs, such as Farm Wagon, Saturday Morning Helping Hands, and other programs designed to bridge the hunger gap.

Packed in each bag, families will find items such as soups, boxed meals, canned fruits and vegetables, and other items to sustain them until they get further assistance. Along with each emergency food bag, A list of local member agency food pantries is given to the client, as well as information about Community Harvest programs in which they are eligible to take part, including Farm Wagon mobile pantry and Saturday Morning Helping Hands distribution.
