Food & Pantry

Food and nutrition are a very important part of maintaining one's health. Here at Disability Awareness Project, we understand that sometimes providing food for yourself and/or your family may be difficult with a limited income when living with a disability. Here are some helpful resources that may help if you are in need of food and may even offer delivery services.
