Mama Wants to Help: Free Resources for Food and Shelter
One of the main functions of a food bank is to alleviate hunger that affects children, seniors, individuals, and families. Food banks have been in existence for several years, and have assisted many charitable community agencies such as shelters, childcare centers, soup kitchens, churches, food pantries, and emergency shelters.
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) was created to safeguard the health of low-income pregnant women, low-income women who are breastfeeding, infants, and children ages 1-4 who are at nutritional risk. WIC provides supplemental foods, nutrition education, and health care referrals.
