Food Banks for Free Food in Sacramento

March 18th, 2014
Food Banks in Sacramento for Free Food Closet and Food Lockers are organized with the nine Sacramento County, CA food lockers serving anyone who needs emergency food. The best way to use the list is to choose a good day to go, such as a Thursday. For example, if you live in zip code 95608, then on Thursday go to the Central Downtown Food Basket, River City Community Services and The Salvation Army. That way you can have enough food to last until your next funding or food locker distribution for your zip code. Use this webpage to make a list, then look at other food lockers specific to your zip code. Using a system will greatly help you achieve self-sufficiency. By Victor Stark.
Emergency Food Lockers Offering Services To All Zip Codes.
