Children's Nutrition Program

Through the Children's Nutrition Program, the Food Bank provides nutritious school snacks to our community's children at local schools through out the school year.  Another outreach for children is the delivery of free lunches during the summer.  

The School Snack program and Summer Lunch Program provide a comfort and supply a need to so many families in our community.

Partner Agency Program


The following list represents approximately 70 percent of the Partnership agencies and organizations that receive regular food donations from the Food Bank of Nevada County. The good intention of the Food Bank is to help fill our Partner's food closets that supply the need to prepare and serve hot meals or to provide their recipients in their immediate communities with a supplemental and/or emergency supply of nutritious food.
