Here’s how to get access to food in Fresno, California:
The Central California Food Bank is preparing family size boxes with pantry goods. For locations, visit www.ccfoodbank.org/food-locator/ or call 559-237-3663 (you can send a friend or family member if you are unable to leave home). Some regular food distribution locations have been canceled so call or check the website first.

Catholic Charities will continue providing meals, diapers, and other essential supplies for those in need. Visit 149 N. Fulton St. from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. or call 559-237-0851.
Cal Fresh: To apply for CalFresh (food stamps/SNAP) benefits, visit this website: www.getcalfresh.org. An executive order issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom waives the eligibility determination period for 90 days, for those already on assistance.
Fresno-Madera Agency on Aging: For seniors who have participated in the congregate nutrition program in the past month, the Fresno-Madera Agency on Aging is enrolling them in emergency home meal delivery. For more information, visit fmaaa.org for updates.
