Our Programs

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, outdoor distributions CalFresh appointments, we maintain a low-barrier in-take process and continue to provide food to anyone in Sacramento County needing our help.

In 2020, service increased by 30% – this would not be possible without the support and generosity of our community!
