Individuals and families in our community need our help. Visits to our food pantry have increased 71% this year! Many households who have never needed help with food, are visiting our food pantry for the first time, and others who haven’t been to the pantry in years are returning.

The Father Fred Foundation remains firmly committed to meeting the growing demand. We are locally funded and rely on the generous contributions of people like you. Because food costs are way up, we need your help to support families in need. Father Fred supports individuals, children, families and seniors in a 5-county service area.
