Since the COVID-19 pandemic, very few schools have had full-time in person learning. Now that schools are transitioning back into the classrooms, we are offering free snacks to schools around the county.
How it works: Schools will send a representative on Friday mornings or early afternoons to our warehouse at 310 Railroad Avenue in Grass Valley to select what snacks they'd like and bring them back to their respective schools to distribute.
How to sign-up: A school administrator must review and sign all papers in the packet below. Paperwork must be either emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, mailed to 578 Sutton Way #187, Grass Valley CA 95945, or delivered to our warehouse at 310 Railroad Avenue. Paperwork must be accepted and approved by The Food Bank before schools are allowed to pick up food.

POSTPONED TO FALL 2022
While our in person event has been postponed, we are currently holding an online auction at 32auctions.com/HarvestMoon2021. All proceeds will go directly to feeding people in Nevada County.
On September 25th, 2021 from 5PM-10PM the Food Bank of Nevada County will be hosting our biggest fundraiser ever at the North Star Mining House. With this event, we plan to tie together local food, local art, and local history to create an unforgettable night for all attendants. All proceeds go entirely to feeding Nevada County families in need! For more information about the upcoming event and how you can participate, please visit the "Harvest Moon" tab at the top of the page.
We are also in grave need of volunteers for this event! Volunteers will be tasked with serving, assisting with the auction, and keeping our guests entertained. Attend a night of local cultural immersion while also greatly contributing to a great cause. We can't do it without your help!
