Feeding the need

Too many people in the neighborhoods we serve do not know where their next meal is coming from. Sun River Health is here to help. Many Sun River Health centers offer direct local pantry services where anyone who needs it can get healthy food for their tables. And, experts at our health centers can help you enroll in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). If you and your family are hungry, come to Sun River Health. We can help.
