Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services
Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services is dedicated to assisting those in need by alleviating their immediate pain and problems and moving them toward self sufficiency and financial independence. Sacramento Food Bank Family Services has evolved from a food pantry to a provider of services for lifelong Sacramento residents—as well as immigrants and refugees who have chosen to make Sacramento their home. Each client we serve comes to us with a unique set of circumstances. Each also comes with a collective hope: to step out of poverty and into a future that allows them to flourish.
How is COVID-19 impacting Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services?
Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services is being approached by agencies, school districts, local officials, families and individuals who have never needed their services before. They also are undeterred in their mission to feed the 150,000 people per month who regularly rely on their services. As it stands now, they are finding their resources stretched and they urgently recognize the need for the Sacramento community to come together to help feed our neighbors.
