Putting Healthy Food Within Reach

Our Focus

Strengthening individuals and families by providing them with the education and resources needed to lead, healthy, self-sufficient lives.


Teaching children & parents today allows for a brighter future.


Helping to ensure children and families have nutritious meals.  


It takes an entire community to raise a child. Once that community is formed, anything can be achieved. 
Our founder Anna Willis passed away in December: this picture shows her at our annual Ice Cream Social this past August, laughing with characteristic warmth.

She made a real difference in the lives of others, and we feel privileged to be able to continue her legacy.
