Twin Lakes Food Bank helps thousands of people each year. Over half are children & senior citizens. We provide services to families, individuals and Senior Citizens in our local communities.
We provide many services including food, clothing, resources and essential supplies for everyday living.
Any donation big or small is appreciated. For a list of Non-perishable food items or special needs, please call us. We gladly accept fresh produce all year around! We'll even connect you to a local group of "harvesters" to help bring fresh produce to our families in need.
The Twin Lakes Food Bank is an extension of God's love to hurting people. For over 29 years the Food Bank has served families in need with supplemental food and clothing. Clients come to us for job interview clothes. Hard times can happen to anyone and your support insures that help will be available to those who need it.
Blankets, small appliances, bedding and kitchen utensils, sleeping bags & tents are used year around. Baby necessities such as formula, baby food, disposable diapers, wipes and clothing are also needed throughout the year.
We have many Senior Citizens that are not able to make it to the food bank. They are refered to as homebound. We call this program our "Angels on Wheels" project. We have a team of dedicated, loyal volunteers in touch with the seniors just before the food delivery day, to find out if they have any special needs that we are able to meet. We are in need of specialty items for Seniors throughout the year.
Each week we deliver food to Senior Citizens living in low income areas. Please contact us for more information.
Everybody should be able to celebrate a birthday! We keep "Birthday Kits" on hand for children & parents that might not otherwise be able to celebrate their special day. These kits are given out in a nice gift bag and usually contain a cake mix, frosting, candles, napkins, plates and a small age appropriate gift for the child. Happy birthday!
Stories from our Families:
"I had nothing when I came here. You gave me hope. You showed me there are good people in this world. I went from homelessness and jobless to a roof over our heads and a new career as a construction supervisor" Richard & Shana
"I live on a fixed income and if I didn't have the food bank to supplement my social security I wouldn't be able to buy my monthly medications"
"My husband is back to work full time now but he took a large paycut. If it weren't for the food bank I don't know how we'd get by with some of the long tough months. We have 2 young children and they can't go hungry." Alysse
