Central California Food Bank
The Central California Food Bank was established in 1992 as a charitable organisation that provides assistance to those in need in the counties of Fresno, Madera, Kings, and Tulare. In order to fulfil its mission of supplying people in need with wholesome food, the food bank works in conjunction with more than three hundred distribution locations and activities. A donation of only one dollar may supply enough food for up to four meals, and this helps the group distribute nearly 46 million pounds of food each year.
Groceries2Go gives its customers the opportunity to acquire food twice during a period of 30 days. The School Food Programs, which comprise the BackPack Program and the School Pantry Program, provide food bags and cartons to the schools located within the counties of Fresno, Madera, and Tulare. Fresh food is distributed via programmes such as the Pantry Program and Neighborhood Markets, which are analogous to traditional farmer’s markets.
Offer for seniors
In order to fulfil the nutritional needs of seniors, Senior Hunger Programs offer them with food kits that include goods that are low in salt and made with whole wheat. In addition, the group works along with the Emergency Food Assistance Program (EFAP) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to provide supplementary resources to those who are struggling with food insecurity. In addition, there is something called CalFresh outreach that is offered to help people and families obtain access to the benefits of CalFresh, which were previously known as food aid.
In addition, the California Farmworker Foundation and the Central California Food Bank work together to provide food hampers to agricultural employees in the communities of Lindsay, Delano, Farmersville, Goshen, Del Rey, and Orange Cove. These areas are served by the Central California Food Bank.
The goal of the group is to lift the community out of poverty and into better health by ensuring that people of all ages, including pre-schoolers, senior citizens, veterans, and farmworkers, have access to food that is high in nutrients. The fight against food insecurity in Central California is supported in large part by contributions and volunteers from the local food bank.
