Maintaining an adequate level of nutrition within the County is extremely important to the FCCAA Food Bank. Through the network of area agencies, food pantries, and soup kitchens, the FCCAA Food Bank continues its mission of providing proper food and nourishment for the community.
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) provides county residents aged 60 and over as well as breast feeding postpartum women, and children ages 5-6 food boxes filled with healthy and nutritious foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, canned foods and cheese once a month. The goal of CSFP is to supplement diets and to improve the overall health of the participants.

In six clinics geographically dispersed throughout the county, FCCAA provides clients with individualized nutrition counseling, food vouchers, an assessment of each client's health status, appropriate health counseling, health care referral as well as other support and information services needed by many new mothers following delivery and during the first years of parenting. Care is taken to encourage pregnant women to breastfeed their children. Breastfeeding mothers are provided individual and group counseling to share feelings and experiences and to reduce problems that could inhibit successful breastfeeding. Pregnant and parenting teens are provided extra support, individual and group counseling, parenting education and case management to reduce risk of repeat pregnancy, dropping out of school and to encourage good social and career goal formation.
