Food Shelf

HOW WE HELP

CAP Agency’s Food Shelf provides immediate food and resources to individuals and families to bridge them through difficult times and help them reach self-sufficiency. Our food shelf utilizes a consumer choice model – you select the food that best suits your needs. A  5 – 7 day supply of food is provided, once within a calendar month. We also provide our food shelf customers connections to resources.
