The Food Bank relies entirely on donations from the public to run our daily operations. We are not government funded. 96% of our expenses go directly to providing food and support to our community.
Cash Donations can be made either online using our secure online donation form or in person at the food bank during operating hours or snail mail . Visit our Contact Us page for more information on our mailing address, location and operating hours
FOOD & TOY DONATIONS
Food Collection bins are located at local stores: SAFEWAY, Freson Bros., and Co-op, and donations can also be dropped off during Hamper Days at the food bank. For large food donations please call to schedule a time for delivery. Please visit our Contact Us page for more information on our location and operating hours.
Toy donations are only accepted during our Christmas Hamper Campaign, which runs from mid Nov to mid Dec.
As a volunteer run organization, we always appreciate having more hands to help! If you are interested in volunteering with the Food Bank, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us via phone or in person during operating hours.
Volunteers are crucial to who we are & what we do. The Food Bank volunteers are the front line people who deal with all Food Bank clients and some donors. They take requests for hampers over the phone, sometimes having to deal with a difficult client or situation. They pack hampers, restock shelves and prepare shopping lists. Several volunteers are also active in picking up supplies bought by us or donated to us by the community.
At present, there are approximately 120 volunteers with our organization. In 2018, over 6,000 volunteer hours were contributed.
