Everyone needs enough to eat, and United Community Action Partnership is committed to helping.
Through partnerships with community members, volunteers and businesses, we are addressing chronic hunger in many ways.
Our food shelves provide food to people in need and use the “client choice” system. People who visit the food shelf are able to choose the food that their family will use, and are given an amount of food based on their family size. UCAP has food shelves in four locations:
