Even in the world’s greatest food-producing nation, children and adults face poverty and hunger in every county across America. 42 million people struggle with hunger in the United States, including 13 million children. 5.4 million seniors don’t have enough to eat, meaning there is limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy life. The Help Out Center was established to meet that need. We are more than a food distribution center, we are part of the community.
Enriching communities and improving quality of life. To change the attitude and the atmosphere of the home by providing hope and resources to lift families out of their circumstances.
