Food for People (Humboldt food bank)

Food for people is the Food bank for Humboldt County. They provide food to those in need and is ran through a lot of volunteers. I just recently found out about them and wish I had another semester to volunteer.

What astonished me the most is the variety of programs that are offered if you or someone you know in Humboldt county isn’t financially well enough to shop for food.

One that stood out to me is the Children’s summer lunch program. The sites where the program meets is at parks found throughout all of Humboldt, they teach children not to be wasteful and can make the learning experience fun and exciting because of how interactive they are. For more information check out the links above to see how YOU can get involved or be helped.

“53.3% of all Humboldt County school children qualify for the free or reduced price lunch program during the school year, but what do these young people eat when school is out?”
