August 5, 2017


Thanks to Donna Cobb, Administrative Assistant, United Way of Nevada County for this info. Here’s the full press release: FAS press release 8-12

On August 12th, United Way, in partnership with Interfaith Food Ministry, will do the 4th in its 6 month trial of distributing food on the 2nd Saturday of each month to resolve the gap in providing food to the “working poor.” United Way provides a majority of the funding and manpower while IFM will provides the facilities, supervision, volunteers and some additional funding.

The program, Food Access Saturday: Uniting to Support Working Families is specifically designed for working individuals and families who need supplemental groceries. The collaboration encourages those who have been struggling with food insecurity, but due to working traditional hours, have never received supplemental food support from IFM to participate in Food Access Saturday.

  • What ~ Food Access Saturday
  • For ~ Any working individuals & families who need food can participate. Current IFM clients, who are working and find it difficult or sometimes impossible to come during the weekly distribution, are also welcome to participate on Saturday.

  • Where ~ 440 Henderson Street, in Grass Valley
