Our Clients

The majority of our clients face hardships that would otherwise prevent access to nutritious meals. Critical illnesses do not discriminate, and at any point in time, anyone can receive a diagnosis of a debilitating disease. It’s important to recognize that a critical illness does not change who our clients are, but it can change how they are able to navigate their lives.
