Join us in our fight against hunger!

In Sacramento County, 15% of residents experience food insecurity, meaning that they lack reliable access to an adequate supply of affordable, nutritious food.

The COVID-19 pandemic created massive economic displacement and sent families to River City Food Bank who have never needed help before. This past year, we have seen our lines grow longer due to inflated gas, grocery and housing prices.  The support of our community is critical to meeting the needs of our neighbors facing hunger. Thank you for helping us build a healthier community!
