Since the COVID 19 pandemic began and the county's economy shut down, the Food Bank of Nevada County has seen a dramatic increase in need. For the last 5 months and on average, we are serving about 10,000 people per month from our weekly drive-through. These county distributions are frequented by hundreds of families with children and teens.
We have decided to begin distributing an additional bag of child-friendly food items to families with children. These bags contain real food and not just snack foods. We want to ensure that our country's children who are schooling from home, whether it is hybrid or full time, have access to healthy meals as well as snacks. This will ensure that we will reach more children, those that are homeschooled or on campus.
We will be reevaluating our school snack program after the majority of schools resume full time on campus instruction.

We will be partnering with Pacific Gas & Electric Company to ensure that our community will get the nutritional help it needs during power outages.
Specific details of distribution dates and times will be available on our Facebook Page as they are decided.
We couldn't offer this support to our county without the generous aid of PG&E. We sincerely thank them for their kindness.
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.
