Emergency Hunger Relief

Emergency Hunger ReliefEach year we provide an emergency hunger relief package for our 400 clients. These packages are filled with non-perishable food items to be used in the event of an emergency such as inclement weather or any other emergency situation that would prevent the delivery of hot meals by CMOW. We also keep additional packages on hand for our clients in need.

Many food drives are hosted by civic organizations, churches, schools, and individuals. It takes a community to gather all of the food needed for these packages and we would like to thank everyone who has contributed food to this project in the past.
