The main purpose of the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet is to provide nutritious food to individuals and families who do not have sufficient resources to purchase it themselves. This group includes low income workers, seniors, disabled, unemployed, homeless, and people in transition. We utilize the USDA nutrition guideline to ensure the families receive the right types of foods.
We are a ministry outreach for our churches and volunteers. We care about our community, the people we serve and our volunteers. We collaborate with other organizations that support our vision, mission, values, and strategy. Our volunteers come from our sponsoring churches; we have no paid staff.
Private donations are our main source of funds. We are a non-profit public benefit corporation (501 (c) (3); and, therefore, all donations are tax deductible.
