Food for People

The Food Bank for Humboldt County

You Can Help!

You Can Help- Donate or Volunteer!


You can help make a difference for our community during this difficult time, as Food for People works to serve limited-income seniors, homebound folks, children, and families in need during the COVID-19 crisis. This will require more help than usual. 



Give now to help Food for People recover and help our community through the COVID-19 crisis. 



We are building a Volunteer Response Team, to help keep programs operating during the COVID-19 crisis. Please fill out our Volunteer Response Team form. Our staff will process it and get back to you as we put together response teams for various programs. We will contact you as soon as possible - thank you for your patience.



We cannot accept food donations at this time, due to the lack of storage space caused by the damage to our building and COVID-19 contamination precautions. But donations go further with a virtual food drive! By utilizing the Food for People’s wholesale purchasing power and eliminating barrel delivery and pick-up costs, a virtual food drive multiplies your giving.
