The menu of food available changes weekly, and includes a selection of fruits, vegetables, bread, yogurt, canned beans, canned fish, pasta, sauces, canned fruits, rice, and peanut butter. Milk and eggs are available once per month.

Once a month we provide:
- Diapers for children under 3 years of age
