The next Food Access Saturday is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on April 13. United Way and the Interfaith Food Ministry have collaborated to create Food Access Saturday, which distributes nutritious supplemental groceries on the second Saturday of each month. The program was originally created to help working individuals who need help putting food on the table, but are unable to pick up food at local food distributions during the workweek. Since it began, the program has grown to encompass a larger population, 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, more than 4,300 bags of food, including fresh fruit and produce, have been distributed to over 1,900 individuals and families. The Interfaith Food Ministry gives out food from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 440 Henderson Street, in Grass Valley and the Food Bank of Nevada County (also a United Way partner agency) provides food at five locations throughout the month. For more information, contact United Way at 530-274-8111 or admin@uwnc.org.
