COMMUNITY FOOD BANK @ THE CENTER

The Community Food Bank @ The Center is a flagship initiative that provides nutritional assistance for those in need. The Community Food Bank @ The Center provides food assistance to all qualified individuals without discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, age, religion, political persuasion, national origin, disability, and/or covered veteran status.

 

Every Thursday evening all year long, we host a clean, safe and accessible Food Bank that provides FREE groceries for up to 275 households each week.  Since 2008, The Community Food Bank @ the Center has been providing fresh produce, baked goods, meat, canned goods, dairy and more to low-income Riverside County residents in need of food assistance.
 
The distribution of food happens every Thursday at 610 S. Belardo Rd.  For each visit, bring an original photo ID showing your Riverside County residency and your food bank client card.  If it is your first visit please bring your original photo ID and proceed to the Client Services table outside front door at 5:30 pm. Because we can only provide this service to a limited number of people each week, please contact The Center's front desk volunteer to confirm service availability, dates of service and see if we are taking new Food Bank Clients  at (760) 416-7790 

 

The Program served over 16,000 households last year and is often at capacity.  Our long term goal is to help reduce and eliminate hunger for individuals and families in the Palm Springs area.
