Auburn Interfaith Food Closet
The purpose of the AIFC is to provide nutritious food to individuals and families who do not have sufficient resources to purchase it themselves. This group includes low income workers, seniors, disabled, unemployed, homeless people and people in transition. Private donations are the main source of funds needed/used.
The geographic area served is from Alta to Foresthill to Loomis. Clients may receive food from the AIFC once every 30 days. Each family is provided with enough food for nine meals for each family member. Homeless folks receive food tailored to their specific needs. All food dispensed meets US Department of Agriculture daily nutritional requirements. Personal hygiene bags, children’s birthday bags, diapers and baby food are also distributed.
AIFC was begun in 1998 when four local churches joined together to address and meet the needs of the hungry in our community. AFCC/UCC is a founding member.
