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.
THE HOLIDAY ASSISTANCE 2019 APPLICATION PERIOD IS CLOSED.
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 only 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. TURKEYS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR THANKSGIVING.
