We offer a variety of services to individuals and families who have low to moderate incomes with food and nutritional needs including:
Fighting Hunger in the Midst of Plenty. Linn Benton Food Share is the regional food bank for Linn and Benton Counties. Since 1981, Food Share has been committed to fulfilling our goal that “Everybody Eats.” Through our network of local partner agencies we attempt to reach every person in our two-county area who cannot find enough resources to adequately feed themselves or their family.
The Head Start nutritional program makes sure to meet the nutritional needs and feeding requirements of each child, including those with special dietary needs and children with disabilities. Foods served are high in nutrients and low in fat, sugar and salt.
CSC Head Start is fortunate to have “Backpack” programs at two of their three sites. This is made possible by volunteers who get food from local food banks. The backpacks are provided for those children identified by their individual teachers as having food scarcity issues at home.
