Distributes free food and groceries weekly to residents in YWCA emergency shelter and transitional housing, as well as low-income families from the community.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, we have temporarily moved to home delivery only.

Please fill out the home delivery form and email it to nhilton@ywcaworks.org. Know we do our best to give every client every item they ask for, but some sub-ins may happen.

All deliveries occur on Wednesdays between 12-3pm, and someone must be home to receive.

We are doing our best to see to the needs of the community, the safety of volunteers, and our part of flattening the curve. 

Please email (nhilton@ywcaworks.org) with any questions.
