Holiday Food Basket Program Request Form

Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County Food Bank is thankful for the ability to support numerous requests from food pantries and community partners each year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Approximately 45,000 unique families and households are assisted each month throughout the county, because of the generous support food donors and the selfless work of our food distribution partners. However, the holiday time often exemplifies the struggle and food insecurity experienced by families and individuals residing in San Bernardino County.
