The GCFB collaborates with over a dozen local food pantries, distributing over 7 million pounds of food, personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies to those in need.
HOMEBOUND NUTRITIONAL OUTREACH
As the senior population continues to grow, so does the number of older Americans who struggle with food insecurity. The Homebound Nutritional Outreach Program distributes a monthly food box to qualified persons 60 or older, or persons with disabilities. The box contains a variety of food including: canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats, peanut butter, rice, beans, pasta and juice.
The GCFB delivers up to 15,000 pounds of food staples Monday-Saturday to host locations throughout the county. A monthly calendar is published to allow residents to plan their visits.
CHILDREN'S NUTRITIONAL OUTREACH
For a family living on a tight budget, putting nutritious food on the table can be a struggle year-round. During the school year, the kids in these families receive free breakfast and lunch through the schools. The GCFB Kidz Pacz program helps to bridge the nutritional gap for children during weekends, school holidays and summer break.
