    Rabobank Center

    The Imperial Valley Food Bank opened its new facility in 2019. Since then, we've been able to more than double the amount of food we can distribute to our friends and neighbors.

    Historic need

    The surge of those needing food assistance during COVID subsided only for a few months. The numbers of people coming back for food is rising as assistance programs have ended and supply chain issues impact all.

    Drive thru distributions!

    We changed our food distribution model during COVID and it looks like it will be the best way to deliver service for the foreseeable future.

  • A Community in Need

    The food insecurity rate in the Imperial County is estimated to be 17% for all residents. Tragically, it is 33% for Imperial County children. These rates remain one of the worst in the nation and the highest for childhood hunger in the state of California.

    We know that alleviating hunger can strengthen the community as a whole. If people have enough nutritious food to eat then kids learn more at school, people are sick less often, workers are more productive, crime declines and the cycle of poverty can end its vicious spiral.

    Our aim is to ensure all residents have access to nutritionally valuable food.

    Please see our available programs if you are in need of assistance.

    Poverty Rate

    Households of four with an annual income less than $25,750.
