Our food shelf needs:

Groundworks purchases roughly 25% of the food we distribute to our neighbors in need (serving over 1000 individuals each month with supplemental food).  As a result, we have an incredible ability to leverage donated dollars to feed the most people.  If you’re considering a donation to support our Food Shelf, please know that monetary support makes the biggest impact.
