La inseguridad alimentaria es uno de los problemas sociales más frecuentes de nuestro tiempo. Nuestros bancos de alimentos, despensas de alimentos y centro de distribución existen para combatir el hambre en nuestra comunidad y también sirven como puntos de contacto para conectar a nuestros vecinos con otras necesidades básicas.

The Carl Gipson Center is a membership-based community. The center serves seniors (age 50+), veterans, individuals with disabilities, underserved communities, immigrants, youth, and families.

Seniors are welcome during all operating hours. Members under 50 years old are welcome to participate from 2:00-5:30PM, Monday through Thursday, and on Saturdays.

Support The Gipson Center
The Carl Gipson Center depends on donations and support from individuals, foundations and corporations to serve everyone in the community.
