Food for People’s Free Produce Distributions Begin
Many community members are finding it harder to make ends meet as we watch food and gas prices rise. To help, Food for People will host seasonal Free Produce distributions this summer in Eureka, Fortuna, Garberville, and Redway. These free outdoor produce distributions will begin in Fortuna on June 22nd and Eureka on June 23rd, and in Southern Humboldt on July 12th. The Free Produce distributions will continue through October to ensure that everyone in these difficult times can have access to the nutritious, seasonal produce, and some pantry staples needed for good health.

Food for People, the Food Bank for Humboldt County, provides vital food resources for the community through hard times- from economic downturns to wildfires, and so many of life’s challenges. As pandemic assistance programs come to an end and food costs are on the rise many people are having a tough time putting food on the table. Food for People works to alleviate local hunger and improve the health of the community through its 18 programs and strong community partnerships. These programs include a countywide network of emergency food pantries; mobile produce distribution to rural areas of the county; food assistance for children, seniors, and homebound individuals; nutrition education; and local food recovery and gleaning efforts. Food for People distributes nearly 2 million pounds of food annually to the county’s most vulnerable members. For more information, go to www.foodforpeople.org or call (707) 445-3166.
