What a year! And it didn't just happen by chance. More than 600 volunteers dedicated more than 28,000 hours of service and thousands of you contributed more than $840,000 in funds and $558,000 in food and toiletries to ensure our doors opened every day and our neighbors were welcomed and served all year long.
Thank you to every single one of YOU! We have high hopes for the year ahead and the potential to serve even more neighbors in 2018. Watch for our official 2017 annual report that will publish in early March. In the meantime, stay involved, come visit us, and help us spread the word about food insecurity in our community.

WEE Can Help!!!
ONT is a place where the whole family can get involved. Now, ONT offers some special opportunities for some of our youngest supporters. WEE Can Help! is a volunteer program for children aged 5-7 years. We have bi-weekly shifts reserved just for this eager age group to help us stock our market along with their parents, grandparents, or their favorite adult.
Every week, we register new neighbors and families who come to us for help. We expect to serve more than 3,500 people this year. But we can't do it without YOU.

Help us Raise Awareness!
The first step in solving a problem is becoming aware that the problem exists. Hunger in our community is still a hidden problem. People struggling to put food on their tables still hide in shame. Even when it’s a close friend or neighbor, many of us are still unaware of how many people are fighting hunger in our schools, our churches, our local businesses. But YOU can help change that! Spread the word and help people understand that even one simple act can make a difference.
