Nutritious, free supplemental groceries are available from 10 a.m. to noon on the second Saturday of each month at 440 Henderson Street in Grass Valley. The distribution is designed for working individuals or families in need who are not able to pick up food during the work week. The program is open to anyone who needs food but is unable to make it to the food distributions Monday through Friday. So far, over 4,790 bags of food, including fresh fruit and produce, have been given to more than 2,175 individuals and families.
