Food insecurity in San Mateo County is growing. What was already a significant problem has only increased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations like Samaritan House, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley and the San Mateo County Human Services Agency have done great work, but the resources are stretched.
Samaritan House of San Mateo: is the largest food distribution agency in our county and a role model. They also offer a wide variety of other essential needs to our community. For more information see website: www.samaritanhousesanmateo.org
Primrose: offers free groceries to any needy family in San Mateo County. Please see more details including volunteers needed & donation info at www.callprimrose.org
Second Harvest: provides food to more than 250K in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. For more info, please see website: www.shfb.org
Our Church Services are back in church and via zoom. For log in info, please refer to the info at the top of this webpage. Our church founder opened her textbook stating “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings.” We trust that you will be blessed by these services.
