As we remain vigilant about food safety during COVID-19, we are NOT accepting food
donations from individuals or from food drives until further notice. We appreciate your understanding.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Placer Food Bank. It's an achievement that we haven't done alone. We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for our generous donors, dedicated staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, and corporate and community partners. We owe them all a debt of gratitude.

Yet, now in our 50th year, we’re dealing with an unprecedented challenge -- the effects of COVID-19. Our communities face the reality of layoffs, furloughs and missed paychecks. Our staff, retail and hunger-relief partners are working hard to prepare for and address an increased need of food assistance in the weeks and possibly months to come. It will be imperative that we keep up with the demand to ensure there is food on the table for seniors, children, and families in El Dorado, Nevada and Placer Counties.

Fortunately, our work continues with our team of supporters in the face of uncertain times ahead. We are not deterred – just more determined to be here for those in need today and for the next 50 years and beyond.

I invite you to get acquainted with Placer Food Bank: here.

Let's solve hunger together. Please join in. Get involved.

Executive Director
