United Way of Nevada County's New Program:

Food Access Saturday (FAS)

United Way of Nevada County, in collaboration with Interfaith Food Ministry (IFM) and the Food Bank of Nevada County, recently initiated a new food distribution program called Food Access Saturday (FAS). This new program was created to help those who work during the week, and are unable to get much-needed supplemental food at local food pantries. Food Access Saturday is a food distribution program that will provide supplemental food to those who need it most on the second Saturday of each month at Interfaith Food Ministry. Any working individuals & families who need food can participate. Current IFM clients who work during the week are welcome to substitute Saturday in place of the normal Monday, Wednesday or Friday distribution, provided it is a week they are eligible to receive groceries. New clients will need to provide a picture ID, proof of residency in Nevada County and Social Security numbers for all those in the family.
United Way strives to assure that individuals and families in Nevada County are able to meet their basic need for food, emergency shelter, and health care. For more information contact us at (530) 274-8111 or admin@uwnc.org. Click here for a flyer.
