Emergency Food Bank of Stockton/San Joaquin, California

The Emergency Food Bank and Family Services (EFBFS) provides emergency food assistance, family resources, and hosts events/programs throughout the year. In an effort to encourage health and nutrition, the EFBFS Mobile Farmer's Market and Nutrition on the Move programs, anchor the EFBFS nutrition education mission. We also provide assistance with CalFresh and the new Expanded Medi-Cal.

Throughout the year, the EFBFS organizes and participates in various events to support the mission of the EFBFS. Events include the former Stockton Asparagus Festival, Stamp Out Hunger, Avenue of the Vines, NAIFA Charity Golf Tournament, Run and Walk Against Hunger, Christmas CanTree, and an annual health fair.

Volunteers play a vital role in the success of the EFBFS. Without volunteers, EFBFS could not provide the emergency food assistance to the hundreds of families, individuals, and seniors that visit the Main Pantry each day. The EFBFS welcomes individuals and businesses who can volunteer their time with EFBFS to help us fight hunger.
