How We Source Food

The food Every Day is a Miracle receives comes from our network food relief organizations’ warehouse, rescue food agencies, food vendors, community garden, and farmers. We take pride in serving our food pantry visitors a variety of healthy and nutritious foods. Our philosophy is to always source the best food quality for our families, seniors, and community residents

How We Distribute Food

Visitors can choose their food selections to meet dietary needs and religious/cultural preferences. As a result, we are able to better identify the food preferences of our visitors, reduce food waste, and increase access to healthy and nutritious foods.
