Do you need food?
"The Salvation Army referred this client to us. A man had been injured and was in a full body cast. His wife was working but she and her children were all down with strep throat. They were new in town and did not yet have friends they could ask to shop for them. They were really suffering. I was glad F.I.S.H. could help them."

If you are in a situation where you are in danger of running out of food and you do not have the money to purchase groceries, follow these easy steps to request food assistance from F.I.S.H.:
Step 1 - Call the F.I.S.H. line at 277-0818 after 7:30 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
- F.I.S.H. responds to the first 20 calls received over the F.I.S.H. line.
- Food is available without judgment or needs assessment.
- You must not have received help from F.I.S.H. within 30 days prior to calling.
Step 2 - Leave a message with your name and a phone number where you can be reached that morning.
Step 3 - A volunteer will call you back to gather information about your family size, children’s ages, special dietary needs and an address for delivery.
Step 4 - Food will be delivered that day between 2:00 and 9:00 p.m.
You will never be charged or asked for money for the food that you receive.
