Food Resource 

Easily find food banks, school meals, and senior center food distribution sites.As the economic toll of COVID-19 hits our communities hard, hunger is a growing concern. Fortunately, free and low-cost food providers are ramping up their service, in a way that maintains social distancing. To help you find food, Contra Costa County has a new GIS (global information System)   mapping tool. It can be used on any mobile device, just like searching for the nearest gas station or cafe on your phone.

Contra Costa County COVID-19 Food Distribution Map https://cccgis.link/Food

The tool, developed by the County’s IT Department, incorporates data from the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, school districts, senior centers, and other food organizations. It was developed in partnership with 211 Contra Costa, the crisis center. Supervisor Gioia’s office also contributed to the map’s development.  Please distribute this map url widely! It is a community tool and will be continually updated.

Richmond Community Foundation (RCF) Connects will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis.
