Backpack Food Program
To help some children make it through the weekends, when school food programs aren’t available, we fill bags with nutritious, child-friendly food for students to take home in their backpacks. With this help, they can come back to school on Monday feeling better and more ready to learn. Contact us to find out availability of the Back Pack Program in your child’s school.
Food Stamp (SNAP) Outreach
SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) is a nutrition assistance program which helps individuals and families purchase healthy foods. SNAP benefits are issued on an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card- like an ATM card. The EBT card at most grocery stores, neighborhood stores and farmer’s markets. Community Food Bank has a staff member dedicated to helping people through the application process. Call us Tuesday through Saturday at 831-637-0340 to set up an appointment.
