Hunger Prevention Programs

At Shifa Clinic, we understand that accessibility is crucial when it comes to food assistance.  Simply visit our clinic during the designated hours, and our dedicated team will be ready to assist you in selecting the food items that best suit your preferences and dietary requirements. 

Clients are welcome to visit our clinic once a month, where they can pick up a diverse and nutritious food box tailored to their needs. Each food box contains a mix of non-perishable items, meat, dairy products, fresh produce, and other miscellaneous items based on our available inventory at the time

To make the process even easier, we encourage you to fill out our one-time registration application form, which simplifies your future visits and helps us better understand your preferences. Join us at our onsite program, and let us help you on your journey towards a hunger-free life.”

Home Delivery Program

For those who are unable to visit our clinic in person, Shifa Clinic’s Home Delivery Program in partnership with Amazon  is here to help. We recognize that mobility challenges or other circumstances may prevent individuals from accessing our onsite food distribution.

Please note that due to temperature regulations and requirements, we can only deliver non-perishable items and select bakery items.

To ensure efficient service, there is eligibility based on zip codes for our Home Delivery Program.  Please check our eligibility criteria to see if your zip code qualifies for this service.

We understand that access to food is essential, and we are here to make it easier for you.”

Child hunger Prevention Program

Many children who rely on free and reduced price lunches during the school year go home to meager or no meals on weekends. The Shifa Clinic Child Hunger Prevention program works to fill that gap. We started the program with five children per month in 2014, and we now currently serve 100 children a month. We will be expanding the program to include more children depending on the funding and resources available.

Difference between Shelf Life and Expiration date

Shelf life is a period of time when a food product remains safe and suitable for consumption when properly stored at recommended conditions. This means that food should retain its desired quality and doesn’t lose its nutrients . This period is calculated since production, distribution, sale, and until finally stored in your kitchen.
