San Geronimo Valley Community Center support of unpaid Federal employees:

Due to recent the recent Federal government shutdown, many Federal employees have not been paid since December. We at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center would like to extend our Food Bank/Pantry to Federal government employees impacted by this shutdown. Our Food Bank is open Monday 9am-5pm and Thursday 2pm-5pm. However, we are more than happy to open up to anyone who serves in the military, and/or has been affected by the Federal government shutdown as an employee or spouse. As a Community Center will feel the importance to include all members of our community during good and bad times. This government shutdown has effected the ability for families to pay rent, buy food or seek medical attention. Please show no hesitation to refer anyone you know, we are all in this together.

Our Food Pantry is a non-judgmental user-friendly place which serves over 500 families a month. Food deliveries come twice a month and the pantry is open two times each week. On pantry days we often provide homemade soups for our patrons along with informational and educational literature. We are here to help and feed those who need it. It’s that simple and we simply do the best we can to make that happen.

In addition to our regular food pantry, the Community Center provides special food distributions during Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays. We are proud to serve over 200 families each holiday with support from our community, local agencies and of course our wonderful volunteers!

The Food Pantry at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center is open weekly on Mondays from 9:00 am-5:00pm and on Thursdays from 2:00pm-5:00pm. Do you need more information?
