Get Help – Crisis Food 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 you access our member agency food pantries and CHFB in-house programs, such as Farm Wagon, Saturday Morning Helping Hands, and other programs.

The Crisis Assistance emergency food bag is not an ongoing resource, but is given for temporary and immediate hunger relief until you access other available programs.

What you’ll receive:

  1. One ten-pound bag of emergency food per household, including items such as canned soups, fruits, and vegetables, boxed meals, and other shelf stable foods
  2. A printed directory of member food pantries in your county of residence
  3. A printed Farm Wagon mobile pantry schedule
  4. Information about our Saturday Morning Helping Hands distribution
  5. On request, we give contact information for the purpose of applying for SNAP benefits
  6. Based on eligibility, please ask about our other programs, such as SeniorPak

What to bring:

  1. Photo ID or Driver’s License
  2. If your current address is not the same as shown on your identification, please bring a document that shows your correct name and address, such as a utility bill or lease.
