World Harvest Food Bank is one of the sources for food and nutrition that low income and unemployed individuals have to feed their families," said Glen Curado,
World Harvest helps a lot of programs that aid needy families. WHF also accepts EBT. At World Harvest Food Bank everyone qualifies to obtain food. One way is giving a donation of $30 and we don't ask for identification, income verification or residency status. Also we accept residents of any other county. We have clients that come all the way from San Bernardino to get Food," according to Curado.
"With a donation of $30, people can take home a whole food cart with vegetables, fruits and bread and other things. Every day we have different snacks, drinks, or yogurt. Even if they don't have a donation, people can take a full whole cart with Food for their families. We ask them to volunteer four hours of their time to help us out sorting, repacking or moving boxes," said Curado, who had been in this business for seven years.
World Harvest Food Bank is the only Food Bank that is open six days a week, from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
