volunteers helping with this program

Many families in our community experience food insecurity, and COVID-19 has only made things harder. The food and delivery assistance program helps meet food needs by providing fresh produce to hundreds of families in our community. The program is made possible through partnership with other organizations, including Helping Hands Pantry and the Inland Empire Health Plan. 

“In times like this, when fuel costs are skyrocketing, when housing is so expensive, even food is expensive, people are just so grateful for this resource. It’s my end-of-the-week opportunity — it’s almost a spiritual experience to see so many grateful people.”

Dates, Times, and Location

Volunteer With Us

Our volunteers help get food to the people who need it most. Sign up on our volunteer portal to distribute food or make food box deliveries. 

Deliveries can be made any time throughout the day when the food boxes are picked up and take about 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. Depending on the need each week, you'll help deliver between four and six boxes and can deliver more if desired.
