When I'm looking to donate to a cause I want it to be to one that empowers people. Sacramento Food Bank & Family Service clients may come in for food, but they are offered so much more. Nutrition classes, parenting classes, career coaching, adult classes, immigration services and on and on. They welcome those in need into their programs, meeting their immediate needs and providing incentives such as clothing and diapers to assist them with improving their life and relationships, along with helping them to meet their career goals. I know my donations make a positive difference and are not wasted.

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services is an amazing nonprofit! I love that they focus on giving people a hand up, not just a hand out. I also appreciate that they have low overhead - I like that my donations are used responsibly.

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services is such a great organization. They are so helpful not only in the community of Oak Park but the entire county. They help people get back on their feet not just give them handouts.

What an incredible organization! As a donor, I know my money is helping those less fortunate in my community. I love that their mission is to not only provide food, but to provide access to education, which ultimately beats the cycle of hunger among families. Keep up the great work!

I am a single mom from Jalisco, Mexico who recently came to Sacramento. This organization has offered me a lot of services. I have taken English and computer classes. I have also received assistance with my resume and job search. There have also been a few times that I received free food. I think they are wonderful!

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services continually impresses me with how wisely they use donations to make such a positive impact in our community. I appreciate that the organization doesn't give a hand out, but instead weaves education throughout all of the services they provide. So proud to be a donor and Run to Feed the Hungry participant!
