Drive-Thru Distribution

DRIVE-THRU Distribution (Updated 3/28/20)

 Due to health concerns surrounding the COVID-19, we will be holding

DRIVE-THRU distributions at-

Grass Valley Seventh Day Adventist Church 12889 Osborn Hill Rd, GV

Thursday, April 2 from 10am-1pm

We will be distributing pre-bagged shelf stable foods. 

Your health and safety is our main priority. The Food Bank is in communication with local health officials on COVID-19 and identifying opportunities to keep our community safe. To prevent the spread of illnesses, we are making changes to how we distribute food. As we continue to monitor the situation, food distribution may be modified week to week. Future changes will be updated every Friday for the upcoming week on our website, Facebook page, and 211.

Call  211 or 1(833)DIAL-211 for more information.
