Community Care

FFCC is about connecting our community to be a help and an encouragement to each other. FFCC reaches over 490 local families in need, each month with food resources. Because of this relationship, we are often made aware of a special need that a family or individual in our community may have. We will share these needs with you here and in our bi-monthly newsletter and if you are able to help please respond. 

Contact Becky Palenske for more information or to respond to a need ffccsdlocal@gmail.com

Messages of Gratitude - Thank You for Your Care Over the Holidays


FFCC extended some wonderful support to local families in need this holiday season. This was a great relief for many families, especially those with children.  The many blessings that were provided to the children and their parents truly demonstrates what the holiday season is all about!  Here are some of the expressions of gratitude:

"Our children loved Christmas. Where do we begin? We are so humbled.  Just wow! Thank you so very much!" from Melissa and her family of 6.

"Thank you for all you do for everyone who needs help and healthy food!" from Gail, a senior

"I'm so thankful to be a part of Adopt a Family, because without it this Christmas season would've been a little bare. And please tell the people who donate food what a blessing they are, too.  I could NEVER pay anyone back but tell them it eases my suffering a lot. Just knowing that people in the community use their hard earned time and money for strangers is 100% amazing! I literally had tears in my eyes when the delivery helpers left." from Kelly and her family of 3.

"I appreciated the gift card, thank you so much. I appreciate FFCC. God is Good!" from Yolanda and her son.
