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. We are also open the second Saturday of each month from 10am - Noon for working families who cannot come during our normal distribution days on M, W, F. Each individual or family may receive community donated food one time every two weeks. 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.
NEW CLIENT INFORMATION:
Welcome to Interfaith Food Ministry!
Interfaith Food Ministry (IFM) is operated by volunteers from IFM member churches and the community. All of the food is donated by local grocery stores and purchased by IFM with most funds donated by the member churches, individuals, organizations and businesses from the community.
What you need to do in order to become a client of IFM:
1. Show us a Social Security card for each person in your immediate household that you wish to receive food.
2. Residency can be established by producing a current rental agreement, mortgage statement, business statement (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc.) or current utility bill (AT&T, NID, PG&E, Waste Management, propane, etc.) that is addressed to the client or any of their dependents at their physical address.
3. Agree to abide by our “Good Neighbor Requirements.”
See right column for good neighbor requirements.
Good Neighbor Requirements
It is a privilege to be able to give and receive food at IFM. You are in danger of losing that privilege if you do not follow these guidelines:
You must agree to abide by the IFM Good Neighbor Requirements and know that if they are not followed you may not receive food from IFM.
Currently you may receive food every other week. You must have at least one “open” week between your visits to IFM.
