Making it hard to be hungry in the Tri-Cities

Food Truck

Love in Action partners with Feeding America and other sponsors to help anyone in the tri-cities area who may be struggling with food insecurity. Each truck provides fresh and shelf-stable, nutritious food. There are no eligibility requirements.

Food Pantry

Love in Action partners with local area churches to provide free, healthy, and nutritious food to our neighbors when they are in need.
