The NestEggg Food Bank at The Center
Palm Springs, CA 92264
Details: The NestEggg Food Bank is a flagship initiative of The Center that provides nutritional assistance for seniors and people with disabilities. Every Thursday evening all year long, we host a clean, safe and accessible Food Bank that provides FREE groceries for up to 275 households each week. Since 2008, the Food Bank at the Center has been providing fresh produce, baked goods, meat, canned goods, dairy and more to low-income Riverside County residents 55 years of age or older, and individuals who receive disability benefits, regardless of their age. Proof of residency in Riverside County and verification of disability benefits are required and all are welcome if they meet these basic requirements. The distribution of food happens every Thursday at 610 S. Belardo Rd. (Seniors starting at 6pm and People with Disabilities after Seniors have been served). If this is your first visit, bring a photo ID showing your Riverside County residency and verification of disability payments, if applicable, and proceed to the registration table to the right by the outside front door at 6:00 pm. Because we can only provide this service to a limited number of people each week, please contact The Center to see if we are taking new Food Bank Clients. The Program is limited to serving only 14,300 households a year, and is often at capacity. In working to reduce and eliminate hunger for these families, we’re building advocacy networks that are addressing this issue, not only in the LGBT community, but county-wide. The NestEggg Food Bank at The Center is so named in recognition of a substantial contribution from the NestEggg Group, LLC. The NestEggg Food Bank at The Center also receives support from The City of Rancho Mirage, The City of Palm Springs, FIND Food Bank, The Palm Springs Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, The Jewish Federation of the Desert, The Desert Regional Medical Center Auxiliary, Hidden Harvest, Desert Healthcare District, The Riverside County Foundation on Aging, and Supervisor John Benoit as well as individual contributions from members and local business owners.
