United Way of Nevada County's Food Access Saturday program supports Nevada County residents by offering food assistance for all individuals and families that are unable to access food distributions during the week.
Why is this program important? Because we, as a community, want to support every individual living and working in Nevada County. During a collaboration meeting of local agencies involved with food insecurity, we realized that access to regional food distribution was not available to many who work or attend school during the week. This is important because Nevada County relies heavily on a low wage, service-based workforce. Combined with Nevada County's high cost of living, these hardworking individuals and families struggle to get by. Supporting these valued members of our community with groceries was a simple act that alleviates some of the financial pressure they experience. And we need them!
In partnership with Interfaith Food Ministry (IFM) Food Access Saturday (FAS) was born in May 2017! To date, we have served over 3,500 families and individuals.
By leveraging your donation with the buying power of regional food banks and generous local food suppliers, we are able to purchase a $20.00 bag of groceries for only $5.00. A family of five receives, on average, 6 to 7 bags.
Working individuals & families who can benefit from receiving supplemental groceries are invited to attend Food Access Saturdays.
Executive Director Megan Timpany and Board President Joanne Weatherly enjoy volunteering during Food Access Saturday
