Help Yourself is a weekly food purchase cooperative for those in our communities on fixed incomes and limited resources. Held on most Fridays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. the $17 cooperative offers fresh meats, produce and a variety of dry goods to create 5 meals. As available, Help Yourself clients can also make selections from a variety of complimentary items like bread & pastry, assorted dairy and deli products. The program offers a great opportunity for anyone who’d like to make the most of their food budgets; weekly or monthly. There’s no qualifying, no limits and no restrictions.
Help Yourself is located at our Volunteer Annex at:
358 E. Javelina Ave

An emergency food program, Helping Hands is a resource for “First Responders,” who are regularly first on scene during an emergency or crises, and encounter a family or household without food or immediate food resources. These responders can contact us on behalf of those families and obtain a non-perishable food box, that same day, to help them through their emergency.
For more information on this program, email email@example.com.
