Getting the help you need
"God aides the valiant...both to you and to me he will give the help needed."

~St. Teresa of Avila

If you are in need of help, and reside in Amador County, you have options for putting food on your table. There are two basic ways of receiving food if you are hungry:

  1. Come to the Interfaith Food Bank main warehouse located at 12181 Airport Road in Jackson. For directions, click here, or call 267-9006. Food distribution hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday - Friday. You will be asked to fill out a brief questionnaire the first time you visit.

  2. Use our Distribution Calendar to find a detailed calendar of dates and locations other than the IFB warehouse, where food is regularly distributed, and to whom.
