SENIOR MOBILE PANTRY PROGRAM (SMPP)
FARSB implemented the Senior Mobile Pantry Program (SMPP)* to address the increased demand for older adults and other families in need of food assistance throughout the Inland Empire. SMPP focuses on serving not only low-income households with adults 60 years of age or older but also other low-income households (regardless of senior status or lack thereof) within both Riverside and San Bernardino counties through regularly scheduled food distribution programs. Food recipients are guaranteed to receive nutritious, healthy, and high-quality food kits at no cost through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (USDA/TEFAP). SMPP seeks to serve up to 2,000 households every month.
*Formerly CSFP. Please note that assistance is now ONE per Household and is open to all age categories.
CALFRESH APPLICATION ASSISTANCE
CalFresh (formerly known as food stamps) is a nutrition assistance program to assist individuals and families who may be struggling to put food on the table. CalFresh benefits are issued on an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card, which is similar to an ATM card. EBT cards can be used at most grocery stores and farmer’s markets. FARSB's bilingual CalFresh team is ready to assist you in English or Spanish today! Fill out the inquiry form to request assistance. A member of our team will contact you shortly to discuss the details of your application, answer any questions, and get the application process started for you.
HOMEBOUND EMERGENCY RELIEF OUTREACH (HERO)
HERO aims to provide a supplemental emergency food box to those who are homebound and without access to a regular source of food. This delivery is intended to be one-time and is subject to end at the discretion of FARSB. Due to product and travel limitations, not all inquiries guarantee a delivery, nor can specialty item requests be granted.
