Food For You - Commodity Program


The San Joaquin County USDA Commodity Program, FOOD FOR YOU, provides free food for low income individuals in 8 community centers and 12 volunteer sites throughout the county. Individuals must meet residence requirements, and distribution sites are determined by zip code. Eligibility is based on monthly income. No application is necessary; individuals must simply provide proof of residence (i.e. utility bill, rent receipt, etc.).

Food is distributed at Interfaith Food Bank on the second Saturday of the month, at each of the centers and 9 volunteer sites on the third Thursday of the month, at the Stockton Emergency Food Bank on the last Wednesday of the month, and at Fathers and Families of San Joaquin on the third Friday of the month. Some locations distribute food on additional days of the month when quantities allow. Please check the list of food distribution locations and times. You can also call the FOOD FOR YOU Warehouse at 209-953-FOOD (3663)  for additional information.
