Food Access Saturday hosted by United Way of Nevada County
Food Access Saturday may be able to help friend or neighbors having a hard time making ends meet, with United Way of Nevada County joining forces with Interfaith Food Ministry to create Food Access Saturday, which distributes nutritious supplemental groceries on the second Saturday of each month.
The program is planned for 10 a.m.-noon Saturday in Grass Valley.
According to a news release, Food Access Saturday was originally created to help working individuals who need help putting food on their table, but are unable to pick up food at local food distributions during the work week. Since it began, the program has grown to encompass a larger population, welcoming others to the table, including anyone who needs food but is unable to make it to the food distributions Monday through Friday.
Since the program began a year and a half ago, over 4,570 bags of food, including fresh fruit and produce, have been distributed to more than 2,065 individuals and families. United Way partner agency, Interfaith Food Ministry, gives out food from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and the Food Bank of Nevada County provides food at five locations throughout the month.
