In a partnership with Elk Grove PATH and EG WINS, the Elk Grove Food Bank Services (EGFBS) will be open on Saturdays starting next month. Over 30 volunteers from the EG WINS Winter Sanctuary program have pulled together to lend a hand and make a commitment to help make this possible. 

The expanded service hours is being initiated to help families and individuals experiencing hardship, especially those who work during the day. EGFBS will now offer food and clothing on Saturdays starting April 5.  

“Elk Grove PATH is excited to assist the Food Bank on Saturdays,” said Ed Kelly, one of the community leaders spearheading the new service day. “We think this will really help many working people who can’t come on a weekday.”

“Elk Grove Food Bank Services serves an incredible need, and I am thrilled to be able to expand our service hours on Saturdays," said Marie Jachino, Executive Director. “We are extremely proud to partner with Elk Grove PATH/EG WINS supporting such a critical mission. We don’t see an end in sight to the ever-growing levels of hunger.”

Since 1974 the EGFBS has battled hunger and food insecurity in the Elk Grove and surrounding communities. The Food Bank provides food and other services to over 3,000 people each month.

Saturday hours will be from 9 to 11:30. The food bank is located at 9820 Dino Drive, Suite 140, Elk Grove. More information is available at www.elkgrovefoodbank.org.
