This food bank serves the needs of the community as frugal as it can. We are blessed to have so many volunteer in such a needy environment . It takes a community of giving neighbors to meet everyone's needs and our food bank is one to connect this community to get the greatest serving capacity from the resources it gets blessed with. It's a honor to serve along many fine individuals and hope that we continue to model what a community of well minded serving people can do.

This is the food bank for Stockton, CA and much of San Joaquin County. They serve packaged groceries and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables to thousands of clients each month. Good agency, with good focus on the community and outreach nutrition education to their clients. Two Mobile Farmer's Market vehicles reach out to over 60 sites, dispensing fresh produce, cooking demos and recipes each month to another 2,000 clients.
