About River City Food Bank

River City Food Bank’s (RCFB) mission is to alleviate hunger in Sacramento County by providing consistent access to healthy, meaningful food for all.RCFB helps people avoid a crisis and work toward self-reliance by providing a short-term food supply when they are unable to meet basic living expenses. Our programs serve low-income families, children, seniors, individuals who are medically fragile, refugees/asylum-seekers, individuals experiencing homelessness, the working poor and individuals with disabilities. RCFB serves all people experiencing food insecurity regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age and background in Sacramento County.


With funding from the Kelly Foundation the the BackSnacks program will be able to alleviate childhood hunger by providing 25,000 students and their families with dependable access to healthy food during evenings and weekends when it might not be available otherwise. The BackSnacks program focuses on the issue of childhood hunger and ensures that the students we serve can reach their full potential without the concern of where their next meal will  come from.
