Food insecurity exists in our community, even when we don't see it.
Because 16 percent of Norfolk residents live below the poverty level, this means many people in our area are struggling to put enough food on the table for themselves and their families.
Community Meal Program | Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
We serve a nutritious, satisfying lunch five days a week to anyone in need who walks through our doors, offering not only physical sustenance but also an inviting environment where people can enjoy companionship and community.
Food Pantry | Monday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. - noon and 1 - 4 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. - noon
Individuals and families in need are eligible to visit our food pantry once every 30 days for a box of staples, including canned and packaged foods, to help make ends meet.
Kids Cruisin' Kitchen | July and August
During the summer, kids don't have access to free and reduced lunches at school, which can put a strain on the family grocery budget. To help fight summertime hunger, our mobile food distribution truck visits Central and Woodland parks to provide nutritious, kid-friendly food like Sloppy Joes and fajitas to kids who might not otherwise have anything else to eat. During the peak of summer, we serve as many as 140 kids a day.
