Food sorting, packing and distribution assistance from California Conservation Corps at San Benito County Food Bank

Community FoodBank is receiving support from the California Conservation Corps at the food bank facility in Hollister. The California Conservation Corps is assisting with sorting and packing on Wednesdays and distribution of supplemental food that occurs at the food bank on Fridays and Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

As Community FoodBank serves its existing customer base as well as a whole new group of people during the coronavirus situation – reaching new people in need – this support is valuable.

Warmly welcoming the California Conservation Corps to our mission, Community FoodBank continues to take measures to ensure the health of our staff, volunteers and customers, by following the CDC guidelines that include hand washing and social distancing. We are also implementing PPE (personal protective equipment) in the form of gloves and, when available, masks.

Please note that we are providing groceries for our current customers in San Benito County who are signed up for Community FoodBank. New customers are welcome to call the food bank to find out about qualifying.

All questions and new sign-ups for food are served by phone or email.
