Every day, thousands of residents in San Luis Obispo County struggle to meet their basic nutritional needs. You can bring immediate relief and hope to a family or individual who is suffering from hunger. The Food Bank Coalition has many options for giving to the meet the interests of our community supporters.
The Food Bank Coalition invests your donations effectively and efficiently: 94% of your donation goes towards getting food to the hungry residents of our community. The Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your gift is tax deductible and you’ll receive a tax receipt for your contribution.
When families and organizations contribute fresh and non-perishable food, it puts more variety on our shelves and in our freezers. All items are appreciated but low sodium, low sugar, and whole grains contribute to better health.
Volunteers are essential at all levels of the Food Bank’s operations from working in the warehouse assembling food bags to staffing at public awareness and fundraising events. For your convenience we run a flexible drop-in program Monday through Friday. Click the Volunteer link above to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
Our mission is to work with a network of community partners to alleviate hunger in San Luis Obispo County and build a healthier community.
