Food Access Saturday


COVID-19 UPDATE: The food distribution will be a drive-thru until further notice.

In May of 2017, United Way of Nevada County, in collaboration with Interfaith Food Ministry (IFM) initiated a new food distribution program called Food Access Saturday (FAS). 

This 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 is distributed every second Saturday of the month.

Any working individuals & families who need food can participate by showing up at the distribution site: IFM 440 Henderson St. in Grass Valley (located in the far part of the parking lot of Prosperity Bowling Alley and Beam Easy Living.
