ATCAA volunteers can help you apply for any program or assist you with putting together a plan to ensure you and your family have enough food. We are committed to helping our local residents become self-reliant and supported by our community. There are many trusted community partners (government, non-profit, faith-based, educational) in our area who may provide you additional assistance. If there is something that we can not help you with, we will do our best to refer you to who can. Call us at 984-3960 x101
