SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY-
An emergency at the Emergency Food Bank could put in jeopardy the next meal for hundreds of people in San Joaquin County.
The center’s food storage freezer broke down, and the $12,000 price tag for repairs is more than the food bank can afford.
The Stockton/San Joaquin County Emergency Food Bank feeds about 1,000 adults and children each day; they provide food packages for hundreds of households and support more than a dozen food pantries around the county.
When the freezer broke down, they had to remove all the meat, dairy products and frozen foods being stored in there and move them to partner locations scattered around San Joaquin County.
Anyone who is able to make a donation to help the food bank fix their freezer can email Rebeca Knodt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
