The Goodman Community Center offers a variety of programs designed to nourish our community. Our Fritz Food Pantry provides groceries for over 100 hungry households every week. We are committed to not only alleviating hunger, but also to providing people with healthy foods — fresh, local and organic — as much as we can. We also try to meet special dietary needs for low-sugar, low-salt and gluten-free foods.

The pantry is open three times a week and serves a warm, community meal as customers wait. 

Food Pantry Coordinator, Erin Finn, is available to present to community groups, organizations or schools about access to healthy foods, nutirition and volunteer opportunities.
