Food Assistance in Las Vegas 2

Food Assistance in Las Vegas, Henderson, and Boulder City

I remember at the beginning of 2020, when the pandemic had just begun, we didn’t know exactly what we were in for, but we knew we needed to help. That’s when our team at Nevada Moms started a small fund to help local families with food assistance in Northern Nevada, which trickled down to food assistance in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas once we expanded.

The last year and a half have shown many of us how important it is to support our local community.

While our small fund was meant to be a bandaid for tough times, we knew how important it was to share food assistance resources for those that needed it.
