Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Community FoodBank has gone from serving around 5,500 individuals per month to serving 12,000 during the COVID-19 pandemic. An additional 700 per month are served through our agency partnerships and an additional 500 per week through our Student Snack Bag program. Approximately 26% of our clients are seniors and 41% are children. 76% report as Latino and 22% Caucasian. The extent of need is significant in our community. 100% of our customers live at or below this locally adjusted poverty level. Nearly 18% of the countywide population would have received our services equalling one person in every four. And growing.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is most simply put as aiming to alleviate hunger in San Benito County. Our goal is to provide food in a dignified and nourishing way to our customers.

Survey the need within the community and determine the best way to feed that need - whether it be by building on current programs, developing additional programs, or creating more community partnerships. One recent example is by the acquisition of a Mobile Pantry we will be able to target identified areas in the city limits that are distinguished as underserved.

We are constantly thinking strategically to enhance and expand our services. We engage volunteers to help us increase our capacity and have a willingness to hire additional staff should the need arise. If funding is needed, then the work to obtain grants or private donations will be sought after. We have the determination within our organization to ensure we do our best to feed the need for San Benito County.

We have recently acquired a Mobile Pantry that will allow us to service more locations within Hollister with the idea or reaching more people.
