Emergency Food Box Program

An emergency food box provides two to three days worth of staple food items based on the number of members in a household. The boxes contain non-perishable items such as canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned meat, macaroni & cheese, rice, beans, peanut butter, cereal and crackers. For more information on the Emergency Food Box program call 615-329-3491.
