Sacramento Emergency Foodlink
In 1994, Foodlink began using its warehousing and distribution capabilities to supplement Sacramento’s Interfaith Service Bureau making more food available to food banks and food closets in the Sacramento Area. The program has grown greatly over the years and today Sacramento Emergency Foodlink serves over 150 local agencies and food closets throughout the Sacramento community. Member agencies come to Sacramento Emergency Foodlink Monday through Thursdays to pick up food that they then distribute directly to the people. The food ranges from palettes of TEFAP commodities, food and non-food items from Feeding America, privately donated food, and a wide variety of fresh produce and grains from the Donate Don’t Dump (DDD) program. This food varies from day-to-day based on what is donated.
