Vision: "Nourishing Our Community...Awakening Hope!"
Our Mission: In response to God’s call to love one another, and bolstered by the spirit of generosity in volunteers, staff, recipients, gleaning partners and donors, Project SHARE food pantry programs and partnerships meet the evolving needs of people on their journey to freedom from want.
Project SHARE distributes food during the week of the 3rd Thursday of each month. Recipients may come once per month during that week. Project SHARE hours of distribution are Tuesday 12-2pm, Wednesday 9-11am, Thursday 3:30-5:30pm, and Saturday 9-11am. Each allocation of food contains 55-65 nutritious food items, approximately one week’s groceries for a family of four with a retail value of $200.

SHARing what we know is an essential part of our philosophy. We offer programs and hands on participatory events to do so. The focus of our attention is in our Kitchen, for it is here where we all learn to prepare the foods that we have available to the community. By SHARing techniques and insights into the healthy benefits of the selected foods and their preparation, we are able to make our lives more enjoyable, healthier and tastier!
We offer cooking classes for kids (three age-levels of Kids in the Kitchen classes) and classes for adults (called Slice of the Month), which provide opportunities for anyone to learn simple cooking techniques that will make participants more self sufficient while allowing them to SHARE their newfound skills with friends and families! Plus we get a chance to SHARE our preparations at the end of each session.
There are special events year round that serve many purposes. Some events are organized by Project SHARE while others are done on our behalf. Events increase our bonding with one another as a community engaged in the good works of Project SHARE.
Fundraising events help finance our mission. Our last event was our Farm to Table event. As we move into the last quarter of the year we look towards more collaborative events to keep our mission serving our community. Click through below for more info on all events.
