Second round of grant funding now available to local restaurants

Food bank receives grant funding from No Kid Hungry campaign

As part of No Kid Hungry’s continuing efforts to ensure all children in the Inland Empire remain nourished and healthy, Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB) has received $49,240 in total grant funding to help feed more children in the community.

“No child should have to struggle with an empty stomach or stress about what they will eat again. This grant will help reach more kids with the food they need to grow up healthy, educated, and strong,” said Kathy Saile, Director No Kid Hungry California.

These funds will go toward SNAP (CalFresh in California) outreach, enrollment, and other services to ensure that every child and family has access to the resources they need to stay healthy and thrive. FARSB’s SNAP Resource Center provides services at no cost to the individual and can assist recipients with questions about enrollment, eligibility, and offers additional help in both English and Spanish.

“SNAP funding is absolutely vital for families throughout the Inland Empire. FARSB is deeply grateful for the support of No Kid Hungry, which will enable us to increase SNAP enrollment at schools and ensure children receive ongoing benefits,” said Carolyn Fajardo, CEO at FARSB. “We look forward to collaborating with schools to guarantee that children have access to the food they need when they need it most,” said Fajardo.

  1. Yes I live in Hemet. My area code zip code is 92544. I’m a disabled 73-year-old woman. I do not have a car. Do you ever have food banks out here for free food and would they be able to deliver?
