Food Aid in Sunnyvale
Sunnyvale Community Services works in close partnership with Second Harvest of Silicon Valley and other generous donors to provide clients with necessary and nutritious food through a variety of food distribution programs. To qualify, we ask that prospective clients meet first with a case worker who will take in basic information about each person's specific needs and will then give the client a special card that gives them access to our many helpful food programs.
To ensure the safety of clients, staff, and volunteers during the coronavirus pandemic, we are currently modifying our food aid programs. For the most current information, call our main line: 408-738-4321
On most Mondays, clients can stop by and pick up 20 - 30 pounds of fresh produce. Produce is donated to our facility every Monday morning and distributed to clients throughout the day from 8AM - 5 PM. Shopping bags are pre-assembled by a staff of hard-working volunteers, each with a healthy variety of fresh produce that typically lasts a week.
The Monthly Food program offers nutritious grocery staples such as chicken, milk, eggs, rice, beans, bread, canned vegetables and fruits, soups, cereals, and more. Clients pick up their groceries at a convenient drive-through distributions. See our Food Distribution Calendar for details. We also have ready-to-eat foods available for homeless clients.
A family of four can save $462 per month if they fully use our Monthly Food and Produce Monday programs.
Children's Summer Nutrition Program
Many of our youngest clients rely on school meals throughout the year. That means that during the summer months they need another source for nutritious food. We have special additional food available during the summer months so that our children stay nourished and well fed while away from school.
In addition to the above special programs, we also take in food donations from individuals throughout the year. We ask for non-perishable food in easy-to-open containers. Dry cereal, canned food with pop-top lids, and shelf stable milk are always needed. We prefer donations of food that do not require cooking since many of our clients do not have access to a kitchen.
If you would like more information about how to donate food, or would like to start a food drive where you work, please contact the Director of Operations at at 408.738.4298 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
