Thanks to Donna Cobb, Administrative Assistant, United Way of Nevada County for this info. Here’s the full press release: FAS press release 10-14

On October 14th, United Way, in partnership with Interfaith Food Ministry, will distribute food for this 2nd Saturday of the month program. 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.

  • Where ~ 440 Henderson Street, in Grass Valley
