We are constantly in need of donations of food, grants or contributions, to maintain the level of service to the hungry and needy of Manatee County. It requires over $10,000.00 and hundreds of food donations each month, to serve the over 2,200 families that appear at our facility monthly. We limit our other expenses or improvements so that we do not deny food to the people in need. We are in dire need of material handling equipment, updated computer software and building improvements to protect our clients from the elements. We estimate that used material handling and computer equipment will cost $10,000.00 and building improvements $18,000.00. We are also in need of dedicated and passionate volunteers to keep our program and services fresh and fulfilling.
