Welcome

Welcome to the Salina Emergency Aid / Food Bank’s Home on the Web. Please come on in and look around to see what we offer to the people of our community. We are a not for profit private community agency committed to helping the people in our community in need. We offer food, help for rent and utilities and medications. We also offer budgeting and cooking classes for those who want and need them. Our agency is run totally on monetary and food donations from the community.

Preventing homelessness by helping with the emergency funds needed when disaster strikes and the family budget just cannot cover the rent and/or utilities is one of the goals of our agency. Another goal is keeping families nourished with the food they need and teaching them how to stretch their food dollar by providing education through our cooking program.
