95820 Food Project
Friends of FRCC,
We are working with several other organizations in our community to put together a " 95820 Food Project " that when fully built out will support up to 200 of our most fragile families in the neighborhood. We would like to start with 25 to 50 families this week.

We are asking those who can support the effort to please help with something from the list of needed items. We're trying to get our first deliveries onto families doorsteps this coming Friday! We are encouraging drop shipping but are also happy to meet those who can at FRCC for drop offs.

Thank you in advance for your support and help with this much needed resource to our neighborhood families!
Wishing that you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe!

All the best,


Erin Stone
