Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Emergency Assistance, Food, Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, Food Banks & Pantries, Human Services

Mission: A community group wishing to help families in crisis founded North County Community Food Bank in 1996. Providing emergency food supplies to low income families, individuals and seniors is our main purpose. The organization focuses on providing these individuals with the resources and network connections they need to develop a path to establishing a stable household again. We do this by connecting these individuals to our Basic Life skill classes; nutritious cooking, growing their own produce, household management, financial management and family health. We also refer these individuals to other programs that can assist them with their needs.

Results: Our services help struggling individuals get back on their feet and return to the work force, while providing them with the networking and support systems they need to get through their individual situations.

Target demographics: low income families and individuals

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 10,000 individuals with emergency food, supplies, services, and community gardening.

Geographic areas served: North Clark County Washington

Programs: emergency food supplies, social services connections and referrals, assistance and resources to help those in crisis regain their self sufficient lives.

The leadership and volunteers at North County Community Food Bank do their vital work with excellence, care, compassion, and efficiency. For many, it is a near thankless job of serving some of the most overlooked members of our community. But clearly nobody here is in it for the praise, they do so out of a desire to make a difference in the lives of others -- to which I say wow! We so appreciate an organization like this leading the way to help people!

I have had the honor to serve alongside the North County Community Food Bank staff and volunteers several times. Each time, I am thoroughly impressed with the level of care, compassion, and love offered to clients as they are served. NCCFB knows their community and is able to engage with and serve clients where their true needs lie.

Thanks for all of your work in the North County area.
