Community Agencies Department
Through our Community Agency Department we provide food to Agency partners on a weekly basis. The support we provide is designed to meet the needs of a variety of programs, from small scale food banks serving up to 300 people to monthly community kitchens with 6 participants.
Our Kitchen Equipment Program provides additional assistance to our CAPs by offering kitchen supplies and appliances. We aim to reduce the costs of community food programs by providing much-needed donated equipment, from everyday kitchen gadgets to freezers.
*We are currently not accepting applications. Application submission will open again in July 2020.*
We are interested in developing new partnerships within our community. If you are looking to develop a food program and could use support, check out the Additional Resources section located at the bottom of this page. For more information on partnerships, please see the contacts listed below.
Workshops + Training
CAPs are encouraged to take advantage of workshops offered by the GVFB including Food Safe training, knife skills, community kitchens, food preservation, and more. The workshop and training program offers CAPs access to food education and literacy by providing community members with an opportunity to learn new skills, and explore different types of food in an encouraging atmosphere.
