"Our vision is that no one in Nevada County who is willing to reach out will go hungry." - Toni Thompson
The Food Bank of Nevada County distributes community-donated food and USDA commodities from five locations in Nevada County throughout the month. The food bank excludes no one in need of our services; persons of any race, creed, sex, religion, age, and national origin, are welcome to partake in our programs.
The Food Bank of Nevada County began in 1986, as a small group of citizens who banded together in an attempt to alleviate hunger in our local hometown community. Over the past 31 years we have met the increasing needs of individuals, families, and their children, who are struggling with food insecurity in Nevada County.
