We have various programs and resources for you and your family to receive free food and basic needs.
In your most desperate moment, we will welcome you and embrace you with love. Guadalupe Community Center at St. Stephen’s CARE Center provide emergency assistance to address food insecurity, reduce poverty, and prevent homelessness. Our services are operating as drive-thru or curbside to maintain safety during COVID-19.
Our food pantry provides immediate food assistance including canned goods, dairy products, meat, bread and pastries, and even fresh, organic produce from our own St. Phocas Garden.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps people buy food for good health. SNAP food benefits are put on a spending card and can be used like a credit card at any store that accepts SNAP. Our case managers help with screening for eligibility for other federal benefits like TANF, Medicaid, CHIP, and HTW.
On the first Monday of every month, low-income seniors can receive a free two-week food stipend.
