Serving the Food Needs of Madera

The Madera County Food Bank has been serving the food needy of Madera County since 1999. Since then we have partnered up with many county agencies that have helped us grow the Food Bank. We now run five thriving programs to fulfill the needs of our communities. With the help of all sixteen of our EFAP distribution sites and twenty Senior Brown Bag sites we strive to get food out to all the families in need. 

The Madera County Food Bank services the entire city of Madera, Chowchilla, Fairmead and all our mountain areas that including Raymond, Coarsegold, Oakhurst and North Fork. The Madera County Food Bank relies heavily on our dedicated volunteers to help prepare boxes and bags for the families and senior citizens of our county. 

We would like to thank our local merchants for all of their support and donations over the years that helped us provide for the needs of our communities.
