The Food Shelf at MFCC provides food assistance to an average of 75 families a month. Food insecurity is a year round problem for many families in our community. Many families have had their 3Squares benefit cut at a time when heat and electricity take the biggest bite out of their resources and they need to choose between buying food or keeping the house warm and the lights on.
