Hastings Family Service (HFS) has been helping the people of Hastings and the surrounding communities meet their basic needs of food, shelter, transportation and clothing since 1970.  Nearly 52 years of experience and a supportive community makes it possible for HFS to help struggling families and feed hungry kids who traditionally make up over 50% of those we serve in the Market food shelf.   The need is greater than ever - HFS provided as many full food orders to neighbors by the end of August this year as we did in all of 2021!           

HFS food programs include:

  1. The Market - a choice-model emergency food shelf where neighbors can shop in person for their food order
  2. Market Drive thru - a no-contact drive thru option to receive a food order through the food shelf
  3. Market Cart - a mobile produce program for senior living communities 
  4. Market Express - an express drive thru option providing a smaller food order
  5. Market on the Move - mobile food shelf programming that distributes food out into the community
  6. Meals on Wheels

Your gift to Hastings Family Service provides nourishment, warmth, and perhaps most importantly, HOPE. Every ten dollars donated can provide up to 70 lbs of food, so your gifts are stretched to help as many people as possible. 

In addition to Market programs, HFS offers financial assistance, services for people experiencing homelessness, Just Friends transportation, free clothing and household items through our Rivertown Treasures thrift store, school supplies and Project Share holiday assistance programs, and a Business Center equipped with computers, a printer and phone that neighbors can use. 

Your help is needed and appreciated!
