During the pandemic, River City Food Bank (RCFB) is committed to providing healthy food to our community when they need us most. To do this, we have completely revamped the way we distribute food and provide CalFresh assistance to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Though RCFB has moved to pre-packaged food, outside distributions and virtual CalFresh appointments, we maintain a low-barrier in-take process and continue to provide food to anyone in Sacramento County needing our help.
On average, RCFB is serving a record 4,500 people per week and close to 20,000 people per month through our emergency food distributions. This is an increase in service of 30% as a result of COVID-19. Many of our guests are families coming to the food bank for the very first time and we anticipate the need growing as businesses and schools remain closed.
To reduce the risk of exposure for donors, volunteers and staff, food donations are temporarily suspended. For more information on our response to COVID-19, click here.
