THE DEADLINE TO COMPLETE THE 2016 HOLIDAY ASSISTANCE APPLICATIONS IS SEPTEMBER 30, 2016.
If you have questions or would like more information about the Holiday Assistance Program or application, please contact Caitlin Sly, or 925-676-7543 ext. 204.
The Holiday Assistance Program is one of the ways that the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano helps Food Bank agencies provide hot meals and food bags/baskets to low income families and individuals during the holiday season.
Please Note: Agencies who plan on providing Thanksgiving Bags/Baskets will need to rely on their own resources and/or use the normal shopping process at the Food Bank for non-perishable food. The Food Bank has fresh produce available for your agency to help with Thanksgiving Bags/Baskets. Since turkey donations arrive just before thanksgiving, not in enough time to distribute to partner agencies, we reserve any turkeys we receive in mid-November for Christmas Bags/Baskets. We are happy to promote your program to people who call us looking for help.
Please review the Holiday Assistance Program Info Sheet. Once you have reviewed this document, please complete the 2016 application(s) no later than September 30th, 2016.
