How To Get Food
Everyone needs a little help now and then. IFM distributes nutritious food to Nevada County residents who are struggling to make ends meet. We are located at 440 Henderson Street, GV, and open every M-W-F from 10 am - 1 pm, and every Saturday from 10am - Noon.

Updated December 2022: Each individual or family may receive food once EVERY OTHER week. This means a family can visit any day they choose, M, W, F, or Sa and that counts as their visit for the week. Then they must skip one week of M, W, F, or Sat Distribution Days, and then they can return on any day the following week.
We've had to scale back how often families can visit, but we are striving to provide MORE food during each visit. This will remain in effect until further notice.
This schedule may be changed on occasion to accommodate special holidays. This information will be posted in advance so that you may schedule your visit.
Since the COVID Pandemic began in March 2020, IFM's distributions have gone to completely drive through.
