I love FISH. How great is it that their focus is food - but not just any food - GOOD food. FISH says they won't give anyone food that they wouldn't eat themselves, and this is reflected in their DASH meal programs (Delicious, Affordable, Simple and Healthy). Clients get all the 'fixings' to make a good meal at home for themselves and their families. And, mostly, FISH tries to help anyone in need - as we would all want to be treated in a time of need!
