We Distribute Much Needed Food To Families in need of help. Many of the people who visit food banks have jobs and are working lower-middle-class families who do not qualify for government assistance. At Infinite Beginnings, we help fill the gap: we provide emergency food boxes to those families who may go hungry without assistance. We also offer a modest clothing share and counseling services for those in need. We do not offer monetary assistance.
