ICA Food Shelf was founded by neighbors and congregations who wanted to address the need within our community. Today, we are supported by almost 40 congregations throughout our service area. 

Our supporting congregations--and their members--are vital to the success of ICA. Our congregations support ICA generously: from special collections throughout the year to ongoing financial gifts, as well as supplying volunteers every day and for special events, we could not serve our community without our congregations. 

To our congregations: thank you for caring for those in need within our community. Your gifts of time, resources, and expertise make our community so much stronger. Thank you!
