Our Pharmacy

At the Hunger and Health Coalition, our job is to alleviate the arduous choices our clients face in their day-to-day lives. All too often, our clients are faced with the choice between healthy food and life-sustaining medications. 


We never want our clients to go without their medication and will stop at nothing to ensure the longevity of our clients' health.

How It works

The Hunger and Health Coalition encourages those who are at or below 200% of the poverty line to take advantage of the pharmacy.  Prescriptions in stock include inhalers, insulin, COPD medications, Hepatitis C medication, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants, antibiotics, and other items.

We do not carry any controlled substances.

You can drop off your prescriptions to the pharmacy Monday through Friday.  Medications are dispensed two days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays.)

Pharmacy assistance program

At the Hunger and Health Coalition, we strive to provide accessibility to life-sustaining medications for all our clients.  Because of this, we have implemented our Pharmacy Assistance Program. 


Our Pharmacy Assistance Coordinator ensures that clients with chronic medical conditions have access to brand-name medication that would other wise be impossible to acquire due to clients' financial constraints. The Pharmacy Assistance Coordinator can sometimes order 90 day supplies from specific drug manufacturers.  


If you are unable to acquire your medications, please ask for a consultation.
