We Care, Inc.'s FADPAC (Food Assistance Distribution Package) provides emergency food assistance and other services to persons in need. The ultimate goal is to have enough resources to provide the FADPAC on the last Saturday of each month when most people have the highest need. Currently We Care, Inc.'s FADPAC program is able to meet the needs of approximately 1,200 persons quarterly on the 4th Saturday of the month.
Whom do we help? Anyone in need of a FADPAC should contact our office as indicated in the "FADPAC Assistance Guidelines'. Anyone who comes to the FADPAC for the first time with proper identification will be provided with a FADPAC. When long-term assistance is necessary, We Care, Inc. will also provide information regarding aid from other agencies.
FADPAC recipients are required to complete an application that helps the FADPAC track its resources. FADPAC recipients are required to provide proof of income eligibility in order to receive assistance.
The FADPAC is designed to provide one FADPAC per household or shared kitchen. Persons residing in the same household and sharing a kitchen will receive a FADPAC as ONE household.
How can you help? The need for this program is very great. When funds are short, FADPAC items must be omitted from the list of foods being distributed at that time. When this happens, the FADPACs being distributed are not as nutritionally balanced. With your help, the FADPAC can maintain a desirable inventory of foods and continue to render a service necessary to our community.
There are several ways you can help to meet the nutritional needs of others:
Have a food drive
Make a monetary donation to the FADPAC
Bring a food donation to our office
Become a FADPAC Volunteer
