Mission of the Food Bank  

Our mission is to provide emergency food and clothing to those in need in the Mandarin Community. We are a ministry run entirely by volunteers.  At Thanksgiving and Christmas, we provide a box of food for a complete holiday meal, serving about 400 families at each event.  Our migrant worker project includes duffle bags filled with personal items such as towels, wash cloths, hats, work gloves, shampoo deodorant, toothpaste, etc., all filled by food bank volunteers. Our volunteers also prepare the hot meal and transport it to different migrant camps. Our birthday project that provides small birthday gifts for children of clients. Anyone residing in the Mandarin Community, regardless of religious affiliation, is eligible to be served.
