HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Nearly one in five Americans did not have enough money at some point in the past year to pay for food.

Community Services Agency distributes over a ton of food each work day to low income individuals and families, minimizing their food insecurity. Our food pantry expands limited budgets so people can afford to pay for unexpected medical needs and/or car repairs while still being able to pay for the basics (school supplies, transportation to a job, rent, and utilities).

DESCRIPTION

Since 1957, Community Services Agency has been providing vital social services for residents of Mountain View, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills. We understand that hardship can come at any time and knows no age limit. We provide a safety net so independence and self-sufficiency can be restored and maintained. Our clients may be a young, working poor family or an elderly person looking for companionship.
 
Got Oranges? Our Clients Would Love Them!
 
Our Food & Nutrition Center (FNC) is beginning to look a lot like “normal.” Effective July 1, we are able to accept fresh fruits and vegetables from local home gardeners. This includes items like citrus and whole fruits and vegetables from gardens and backyard trees.
