Central California Food Bank provides food to over 220 partner feeding sites including churches, community centers, and other organizations so they can feed the hungry in their respective neighborhoods. Thousands of volunteers give their time to make these distributions possible.
Fresh Produce Distributions
The Mobile Pantry Program & Neighborhood Markets are Farmers' market-style distributions. The Mobile Pantry is operated from a self-contained vehicle that can reach rural locations with ease. These programs provide an abundance of fresh produce to those in need.
Groceries2Go provides grocery boxes through pick-up and delivery appointments easily made through our website. Recipients can receive food twice within a 30-day window. Access to food in this way is ideal for the immunocompromised, working adults, disabled, or those with small children.
