About

   

Our goal is to offer a food distribution site in the evening targeting individuals who work during the daytime hours and need help. We also seek to make sure that our food is healthy and fresh.

We are working with North State Food Bank to provide healthy food on a weekly basis. On Wednesdays from 5 pm to 6 pm, we will distribute one bag of food per individual or family. The bag is designed to provide a family of five with a healthy meal.

Our hope is to expand our services to multiple nights during the week. Our goal is to offer a food distribution site in the evening targeting individuals who work during the daytime hours and need help.

My volunteering experience distributing food at the Church on the Esplanade every Wednesday is fun. It makes me feel good to know I’m doing a good deed by helping people in need. Who would ever know would end up helping people after I went on the first day the program started to ask for food. At first I was nervous to volunteer because I got scared to ask for food. Now I am not nervous but I still have trouble asking for food because I feel like the other volunteers judge me but oh well when you got to feed a family of five you got to suck it up and ask for food. I am very thankful for this wonderful experience.
