Emergency Food Pantries

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada distributes food to local food pantries so that people and families can receive a bag of groceries and other emergency food assistance close to their own neighborhoods. These food pantries are open to help on different days of the week and at various times during those days. Those in need of food assistance can find a variety of resources available through our partner agencies and direct service programs.

Mobile Harvest

Access to nutritious, healthful food is vital for the community members we serve. Throughout the month, the Food Bank’s Mobile Harvest program visits neighborhoods across northern Nevada and eastern California to distribute produce and other fresh food items to clients.  All community members in need of food assistance are welcome to visit Mobile Harvest.  There are no qualification requirements, and each household may pick up food from a Mobile Harvest distribution once per week.

Washoe County: July 2021August 2021
Rural Northern Nevada & California Communities: July 2021 | August 2021

what to expect when arriving at mobile harvest

  • All Mobile Harvest distributions are currently being run as a drive-through format.  When you arrive at the site, please be sure to pay close attention to all signs, as well as staff and volunteers directing traffic.  We kindly ask that you remain in your vehicle the entire time.  Your groceries will be loaded into your vehicle for you; please have the door unlocked and ensure that there is space available for the food.  
    • Those without transportation are still welcome to visit Mobile Harvest and will be served via a walk-up line.  Please respect social distancing at all times while on site by remaining at least 6ft away from those not in your household.
  • Masks/face shields are required at all times while attending Mobile Harvest distributions.  Thank you for helping us to keep everyone as safe as possible by wearing your mask anytime that you are interacting with staff or volunteers, including during check-in and while your groceries are being loaded into your vehicle.

Intake & check-in

  • Intake Form: During your first visit to Mobile Harvest, and once per year after, we will need to collect an Intake Form from you.  Please know that your responses to the questions on this form are completely confidential and in no way impact your ability to receive food assistance through Mobile Harvest.  If you have a printer available to you, you can make the intake process on-site even faster by downloading and completing this form prior to arriving at the site.  English Intake Form | Spanish Intake Form
  • Barcode IDs: If you have an ID that has a barcode on it, we ask that you provide this during check-in, as it can greatly speed up the check-in process.  Please note, IDs are not required, and you will still be happily served with or without one.  This request simply helps to move the line along more quickly.

Having others pick food up on your behalf

  • If you are unable to make it to a distribution for any reason, you may have a friend/family member pick up your food if you have completed an Authorization Form and designated the person on this form. You may designate up to three people to pick up food on your behalf.  Your household may still only receive food once per week, regardless of who is attending the distribution.
  • If you have not already completed the form, you may download and complete it here and have the person bring it with them to the distribution: English | Spanish
  • Please note, you must already have a form on file with us OR the person attending the distribution must bring the form completed and signed by you with them, or we will not be able to allow them to pick up food on your behalf.
  • If you are a designated person picking up for another household: You may get food for YOUR household and ONE other household each week.  You may be an authorized person for more than one household but will not be able to get food for multiple on any given week.

 

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)

Golden Groceries Pantries

The Food Bank is working closely with our partner food pantries to establish food pantry locations and hours focused exclusively on serving our senior clients.  We’re excited to see this program grow over the next several months.

Partner pantries currently offering senior-only hours are:

  • Sparks Christian Fellowship – 510 Greenbrae Dr, Sparks| Every Wednesday 9:00-10:00am

  • Eureka Senior Center – 20 W. Gold St., Eureka | First Monday of the month from 1-2:30 pm

Through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), the Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides a monthly box of nutritious food to low-income seniors 60 years and over. Boxes are distributed at more than 40 locations across Reno, Sparks, and rural northern Nevada.  Program participants are provided with a box of supplemental food items, which may include canned meat; vegetables; fruit; cereal, pasta, rice, or potatoes; evaporated or dry milk; dry beans or peanut butter; and American cheese each month.

Seniors who do not meet the income guidelines set forth for CSFP may attend distributions to receive a similar box of pantry staples through the Food Bank’s Senior Box program.  Guests visiting the CSFP/Senior Box distributions are also able to access fresh fruits and vegetables while picking up their monthly box.

Nutrition on Wheels at Distributions

NOW (Nutrition on Wheels) Nutrition Program is provided by the Food Bank at Mobile Harvest and Produce on Wheels distribution sites. The Food Bank’s Mobile Harvest & Produce on Wheels truck delivers fruits and vegetables into 40+ neighborhoods every month, year round. Families who otherwise cannot access or afford to buy fresh produce come to meet the truck at a site in their neighborhood, and go home with a generous supply of produce and other perishable foods, including dairy, yogurt, etc. While they are waiting to check-in, a bilingual nutrition educator sets up a table and talks with clients about pertinent nutrition topics in the form of short nutrition lessons.


For more information about the Food Bank’s Nutrition Education programs, please contact Child Nutrition & Nutrition Education Manager, Cheryl Le, at (775) 331-3663 ext 132.

The Food Bank proudly supports Produce for Better Health Foundation’s Fruits & Veggies-More Matters initiative.
