Continuing to Fulfill Our Mission

Each week, families in the Bentley program have the freedom to choose provisions and maintain decision making based on their family’s needs.  By Bentley providing nutritious, healthy and nourishing foods and basic needs products to working families in financial crisis, these households not only become food secure, but food secure with delicious, nourishing and wholesome fresh foods that they simply cannot currently afford. Good foods are in their refrigerators, freezers and household pantries eliminating the stress that is associated with food insecurity.  Crucial monies saved on these provisions are applied to reduce debts, pay monthly bills and expenses, put gas in the car in order to go to work and avoid bankruptcy, foreclosures and evictions. Each week families leave with full shopping carts with the ability to feed their families healthy foods and more each day of the week!

Special Bentley Visit!

One of our participant family’s son just graduated from the Marine training facility in South Carolina last week.  We were honored to meet him when he came with Mom to pick up provisions for their family. Here is Matthew with his sister Chelsea.  We were so impressed with him!  He was so impressed with Bentley! Thank you for your service.
