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 has increased the need by creating massive economic displacement and sent families to River City Food Bank who have never needed help before. 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!

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 2021, RCFB served more than 206,000 people in need – this would not be possible without the support and generosity of our community!
