Andrew & Buchanan County Residents:
Please review the following Food Assistance Guide to learn about the services qualification process (Yellow Cards).


Military Policy

Military members and their families will be able to forego the qualification process normally required to receive food assistance from Second Harvest or a Partner Agency.

  • Overview: Second Harvest now has a policy that allows all current or previous service members and their families to forego the qualification process normally required to receive food assistance from Fresh Start, Your Community Market, located on Second Harvest’s campus.
  • Who Qualifies? All current or previous service members and their families (all branches).
  • How Does it Work? In order to shop at Fresh Start, service members will only need to provide a current military ID or VA card. In lieu of these items, a DD-214 will be accepted. Note: Service members will not be able to access commodities, unless requireddocumentation is received by the USDA.
  • Why? This policy is a way for Second Harvest to give back to the military community by allowing military families quick, easy service at Fresh Start.


Fresh Start

In addition to the over 100 Partner Agencies, people may also receive food through Fresh Start, Second Harvest's community food pantry.
