The Food Bank assists people in becoming and/or remaining self-sufficient by lessening the stress of meeting their basic need for food. We provide a variety of nutritious food to low-income individuals, families, seniors, and non-profit organizations throughout Napa County. Through unique partnerships we facilitate four programs and maximize food availability and access.

Low-income residents of Napa County may receive an allotment of food from one of our 6 locations every thirty days. These allotments are based on household size, but consist of meat, dairy, produce, and dry and canned food items. Food pantries are located in Napa, Calistoga, St. Helena, Lake Berryessa, Angwin, and American Canyon and together serve an average of more than 1,000 households each month.
The Senior Brown Bag Program enables seniors over the age of 60 to remain independent as long as possible, by giving them a "Brown Bag" with approximately 10-14 food items twice a month. Food items may include fresh fruit, canned vegetables, oatmeal, bottled beverages, pasta, and canned meat. Seniors pick up Brown Bags from 12 sites throughout Napa County, or volunteer drivers deliver food to those who are infirm or disabled. An average of 275 households are served each month.
The United States Department of Agriculture contracts with the Napa Valley Food Bank to administer 6-8 nonperishable food staples to low-income Napa County residents once per month from 9 various locations. Items typically include peanut butter, cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, and canned meat.
In addition to providing direct food distribution, The Food Bank also contracts with fellow non-profit organizations serving vulnerable low-income people for an inexpensive food supply. Agencies can shop once per week and may access bulk food for free, at .18 cents per pound, or at wholesale cost based on the source of food. This allows fellow non-profit organizations to better offset their food budget, better access to a nutritious food supply, and the ability to serve larger numbers of clients when needed.
