Locally founded.

Locally funded.

Locally focused.
"Everyone deserves

to be treated with respect."

We provide food

clothing, financial aid,

and household goods.
We serve approx. 280 families

per week in our food pantry.

Our volunteers are the backbone of the Foundation

What we have to offer families in need is a direct result of the generosity of our community.


Since 1989, The Father Fred Foundation has been providing food, clothing, household goods, and financial assistance to those with less within our five-county community. In the words of Father Fred himself, we are here to listen, care, share, and above all, provide hope for those who find themselves in difficult times. Our goal is to ensure that no one in our community falls through the cracks - and we do all this without accepting any state or federal aid.
