Our donors are critical to the success of our program. Because of the assistance of our donors, we have been able to provide 4.5 million hot nutritious meals to the hungry of Contra Costa County since 1983. Because of their support, we are able to serve more than 650 meals a day in four locations.
We are a reliable source of food for many that cannot afford to put food on their table. We serve anyone who is in need of food. Our doors are open Monday-Friday and we support five dining room locations.
We also provide meals through our food pantries located at each dining room. Last fiscal year our food pantry distributed more than 252 tons of groceries including fresh produce and nonperishable items to our clients, and served 138,000 meals.
Our free Culinary Arts Program teaches basic culinary skills with an end goal of helping people back into the workforce and becoming self-sufficient. Our Donors help us meet our mission of “Nourishing Lives” everyday!
