Food Donations

You can help us keep our community nourished and well cared for.

Overcoming Hunger

Often The First Step

The food you donate is used to provide over 400 meals each day at Water Street, as well as provide groceries to the hundreds of Lancaster families that come through our Outreach Center each week. 

For many, a hot meal or a bag of groceries may be the first step to building relationships with the staff and volunteers who will help them on their healing journeys.
