FOOD FOR FAMILIES HARDEST HIT BY DROUGHT

STOCKTON, Calif. ‐ San Joaquin County has been designated as the recipient of 20,832 drought relief food boxes. These boxes are intended to provide additional food to families in the community who have been most impacted by the continued drought conditions. In April the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) informed the San Joaquin County Human Services Agency (HSA) that as one of the 24 most drought‐impacted counties in the state, they would be receiving food for distribution to the community.


County staff identified the most effective method of distribution of food boxes to families most impacted by the drought. The primary recipients of the food boxes are those individuals and families who have lost a job or have experienced a work reduction due to the drought. HSA has partnered with local organizations, including the California Human Development to get the word out about this new program.  The food boxes contain nutritionally balanced, non‐perishable food designed to provide enough food for a household of four people for about five days. vegetables, soup, peanut butter, rice, and beans. Food items include canned fruits and vegetables, soup, peanut butter, rice, and beans. Since early June, HSA has distributed an average of 350 food boxes per week and as the program continues through the summer months; the number of food boxes distributed is anticipated to grow. Listed below are the days, times and locations where those impacted by the drought can receive food boxes to help feed their family.
