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 food and gas 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. Now through the end of September all gifts to Food for People will double in value thanks to a $20,000 Matching Challenge from Craig Hansen and Craig Hansen Insurance.
