Our Programs

OUR PROGRAMS

    At the Fort Bragg Food Bank, we serve low-income coastal Mendocino County residents from Elk to Westport, including the towns of Mendocino and Fort Bragg.  
 
Once a week, clients may pick up a bag of staple foods and choose from a variety of fresh produce, bakery items, and limited quantities of meat, eggs and dairy. Once a month eligible seniors and families with children under age 6 may also receive a box of staple foods through the Commodities Supplemental Food Program (CSFP).  
 
   In addition, we distribute USDA commodities monthly to food pantries, food distribution sites, soup kitchens, and homeless service agencies throughout the entire county. We provide over a million pounds of food each year to clients countywide.

    Each month at the Fort Bragg Food Bank we serve approximately 1,100 client households representing 1,900 household members. Clients may pick up food once a week. Typically we service about 2,500 client visits per month.
