Through this program, our pantry visitors can get additional food support and receive up to 4 monthly $30 vouchers (or more for students with children) to use at the Tanaka Farms Drive-Through Produce Market Stand. Please note that for Summer and Fall 2020, we are requiring applicants to first tap into our pantry food distributions before requesting supplemental support via these vouchers.
