Community Connections 95820

Community Connections 95820 project was formed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This project partners with local Elementary schools to identify high-need food-insecure families in the 95820 ZIP code area. A local school liaison identifies families in need, conducts a thorough needs assessment, and then connects families to the program. Additional periodic assessments are done with participating families to identify changes in need and effectiveness of the program.   We deliver farm fresh produce and grocery staples to these families that have barriers to accessing traditional emergency food distribution sites during the COVID crisis, (e.g., immunocompromised, senior or other COVID-vulnerable family members in the household, lack of transportation, single caregivers, etc.) We provide enough food to keep their whole family fed, delivered right to their door every week. We prioritize purchasing our produce from small-midsize local growers whenever possible, resulting in additional economic support for our region.

This project is fiscally sponsored by Alchemist CDC.
