The Cloud County Food Bank is devoted to assuring that all members of Cloud County do not go hungry regardless of their race, color, religion or lifestyle. Through public awareness, education and community advocacy; the Resource Center designs programs to improve the ability of low-income individuals to maintain an adequate supply of wholesome, nutritious food.

Profile

This is the first year that we have filled in for government budget shortfalls by doing additional proccessing of these items to individuals in need.  Any funds or addtional help we can get allows us to protect vulnerable people in the community from starvation.

This past year, the food bank fed nearly 1800 people in this community.  50% of them were children under the age of 10 and seniors over the age of 55.  And we are an agency fed by local funds.  We receive some monies from the city and the county for our efforts and the rest we receive from our generous and loving donors.  We absolutely could not do this without them.

Each year, we add new special projects in addition to protecting the projects we have always done such as the Holiday Store, Holiday Baskets, LIEAP registration and School Supply Drive.  This past year we added the Care Bags for Kids drive to help children in protective custody feel more comfortable and cared for in addition to our regular activities.

We also provide bill pay assistance to those in need.  As life's little unplanned events upset even the best plans of people, we can offer help with natural gas, water and electrical bills once a calendar year.

We try to do whatever our community requires of us.  And as gaps in services present themselves we undertake it upon ourselves to fill in as much as we can.
