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 throughout the school year.  Another outreach for children is the delivery of free lunches during the summer.  


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

Community Agency Program

The following list represents approximately 70 percent of the community 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 community'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.

This program aims to assist the elderly and disabled community in preparing for emergencies. Californians can now access resources to better protect themselves and their community before disaster strikes.


"We are leveraging the power of volunteerism while ensuring preparedness support and information is not only limited to those who have been privileged enough to access, understand and afford it."

-Gavin Newsom, Governor of California
