The GAP Food Bank was started almost 20 years ago as a way to help the working poor, single mothers, recovering addicts, seniors on a fixed income and the underprivileged. The philosophy is simple, assist families each week by providing many basic food items such as dairy products, bread, meat, produce and other non-perishable items. By providing food, the families are now better able to apply their limited financial resources to housing expenses and other necessities.
The GAP Food Bank provides basic food items to approximately 350 families consisting of approximately 1500 individuals in the community each week. The average value of the food that is given to each family is between $75 and $100 each week, which amounts to over $1.25 million in food provided to the community per year.
The GAP also provides food to other local food banks that are assisting needy families in the community as well.
