The Importance Of Partnerships

Like most food banks, CAPSBCs Food Bank has faced a prolonged increase in demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With such a large county and population to serve, meeting this demand wouldnt be possible without financial and logistical assistance. CAPSBC Food Bank put their $470,000 from the 2021/2022 EFAP Capacity grant to great use with the purchase of a semi-cab, refrigerated semi-trailer, industrial cooler, and warehouse inventory system.

This year, CAPSBCs Food Bank Program has received a total of 2,515,494 lbs. at a value of $3,319,013 of USDA foods, 607,686 lbs. of purchased foods, and 2,525,680 lbs. of donated foods from various vendors including Sams Club, Stater Bros, Amazon, Home Chef, and Growers Fresh.

CAPSBC Food Bank currently partners with 127 USDA distribution sites, 96 Community Pantry Program sites, 25 Congregate Feeding Agencies/Soup Kitchens, 14 Senior Choice Nutritional programs, and 11 Campus Cupboard partners totaling 273 programs to alleviate hunger and food insecurity throughout San Bernardino County.

It is these kinds of huge collaborative efforts that make it possible for our network of 41 member food banks to meet the need of Californians in their communities. We are so proud to have CAPSBC Food Bank as one of our member food banks, and we are amazed by all of the work that their staff does every day to fight hunger in San Bernardino County.
