To provide essential resources to overcome the many faces of hunger and human need.

History

 

 

Elk Grove Food Bank Services (EGFBS) was founded in 1973 at a local church by the Elk Grove Ministerial Association. Since its founding EGFBS has distributed over 5,412,130 meals and approximately 9,800,000 pounds of food in our local community and surrounding areas. For 43 years EGFBS has led the fight against hunger by working with caring donors, volunteers, foundations, local government, churches and community groups. Over the years the Food Bank has expanded and evolved to serve the needs of food insecure individuals by providing emergency food, eight mobile distribution sites, CalFresh, clothing, nutrition classes and other services at no cost. Having our local community come together to care for those in need is one of the privileges of our work.
