Feeding America Riverside / San Bernardino
To Hold Regular Monthly Tours Regional Food Bank to Host Public Tours Second Tuesday of Every Month
(Riverside, CA / March 3, 2019) – Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB) announced it will open its doors for regular public tours, the second Tuesday of every month. Members of the community can tour the 60,000 square foot warehouse and facility located at 2950-A Jefferson Street in Riverside to find out how food insecurity is being addressed in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
The tours will begin in the operations department at 9 a.m. This month the tour will be held on Tuesday, March 12 at 9 a.m. and those interested should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“There is good news,” said FARSB Director of Philanthropy Lori Butler. “One in five children is food insecure in the Inland Empire.” “That’s actually good news”, she explains, “Last year that figure was one in four children at risk of going hungry every day. These tours are designed to explain to the public how we have been able to impact our communities and see that more children and families are being fed.”
“Over 800,000 people in the IE are at risk of food insecurity, and we couldn’t do what we do without the support of the community -- from individuals, to organizations and corporate partners. Everyone is welcome to see how we do what we do and how they can join us in meeting the needs of our neighbors who need it most.”

More than 100,000 men, women and children, rely on the food bank’s distribution center each month to make ends meet.
