Drive-thru food distributions at various locations throughout the month
The Food Bank is very pleased to announce that our School Snack program was a great success this past school year! We served over a dozen schools and thousands of children ate our snacks. We look forward to helping them again in the coming years.
How it works: Schools will send a representative on Friday mornings to our warehouse at 310 Railroad Avenue in Grass Valley to select what snacks to bring 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.
Schools must re-apply each year they participate!

We are proud partners with the Nevada County Diaper Project who work to provide diapers for babies in the community. Many mothers struggle to afford basic needs for their babies, including clean diapers. A clean diaper leads not only to a happy and healthy baby, but also to a happy and healthy mother and family.
You can receive diapers and other baby products from the Nevada County Diaper Project at our Grass Valley distribution the second and fourth Thursday of every month as well as on their website.
We also accept donations of diapers, wipes, formula, food, etc.
FREED Center for Independent Living offers a variety of resources including a food delivery service twice a month to elderly, disabled, and/or homebound individuals in Nevada County. If you or someone you know is homebound and unable to attend our distributions, contact FREED by phone for more information on how to sign up (530-477-3333).
