Crossroads has been waiting, watching, and trying to determine the best path forward. One thing that has not changed is our mission; it has always been and will continue to be eliminating food insecurity as a barrier to learning.  The distribution channel for our weekend food bags was through the schools, so we’ve had to re-evaluate that practice.
