Help serve 1,000s of community members.

Nuestra Casa recovers healthy, high-quality food from local grocery stores that would otherwise be thrown away. By reducing food waste, this program also reduces greenhouse gases. We distribute it to families in East Palo Alto and Redwood City. You can help by sorting and distributing food at a delivery location in East Palo Alto or Redwood City.

Some heavy lifting may be involved. Masks and gloves provided.

Flexible commitment. Current locations are:

Rise City Church, 1305 Middlefield in Redwood City

1991 Manhattan Ave in East Palo Alto

Rocketship Prep, 909 Roosevelt in Redwood City
