committed citizens can change the world...
indeed it's the only thing that ever has!"

Merced County Food Bank

Merced County Food Bank is a private non-profit organization that grew out of community collaboration to feed the hungry in the local area. A board of Directors consisting of representatives from most of the cities in Merced County is responsible for running the Food Bank.

There are more than 45,000 people, many of them children and seniors, living below the poverty level in Merced County. Merced County Food Bank serves as a communal bridge between those in need of food and those who are willing to share what they have.

The Food Bank is in partnership with 80 area pantries and manages 22 USDA food distribution sites. In addition, the Food Bank operates the Senior Brown Bag Program providing food twice a month to about 1,600 very low-income elders in Merced County.
