TOUCH relies on its network of grassroots supporters and partner agencies to help us prevent hunger and promote health as we distribute more than 400,000 meals per year to families dealing with chronic illness and food insecurity. Caring support from people like you is essential to our ability to prevent hunger, provide emergency food, serve the chronically ill, recover food and distribute it to over 40 local food pantries.

Please donate, volunteer and do what you can to help TOUCH make a difference. We welcome your support and personal involvement in building a healthier community where no one is left behind.
