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 email@example.com, 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.

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 home bound individuals in Nevada County. If you or someone you know is home bound and unable to attend our distributions, contact FREED (530-477-3333) or visit their website to learn more.
CalFresh provides monthly food benefits for individuals and families with low-income who meet federal income eligibility rules and want to add to their budget to put healthy and nutritious food on the table. CalFresh benefits can help buy nutritious foods for a better diet. CalFresh benefits stretch food budgets, allowing individuals and families to afford nutritious food, including more fruit, vegetables and other healthy foods.
The program issues monthly benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. Food may be purchased at most grocery stores or farmers market that accepts EBT cards. To learn more, visit their website.
