Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Food Assistance

Our food assistance program is our boots on the ground. We have over 90 agency partners that serve our two main counties San Joaquin and Stanislaus. We also have a network of four Partner Distribution Organizations that help us distribute food to our outlying territories.

Population(s) Served

Our Senior Brown Bag program takes place at 24 locations in San Joaquin County with 2 locations for our home delivery. Our brown bag program looks to meet the needs of senior citizens that are having to choose between housing, medical and other bills over food. Twice per month, they receive 20-25 pounds of mixed grocery items that include dairy, fresh produce, and shelf-stable items. We try to keep the nutritional needs of seniors in mind with this program.
Our Senior Home Delivery program is in the process of expanding to include additional seniors that are in need of our services but are unable to leave their homes.

Population(s) Served
Older adults
Seniors

Formally our Food 4 Thought program. With the rapid onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we had to quickly readjust the way our schools were receiving food support for their families. We introduced Fresh Food 4 Kids as a pilot program for the 2020-2021 school year. School sites are able to choose either a pantry, a mobile drop or a combination of the two depending on what fits their needs. In doing this we are able to provide food to more families in need and in a much safer fashion. What has always been a program offered in elementary schools we are now expanding it to High Schools as well.

Population(s) Served

Our mobile fresh program is our only direct distribution our food truck goes out between 3-5 times a week to neighborhoods in need. The truck which carries 10,000 pounds of food at a time provides fresh produce, dairy and other fresh food options. Each distribution is averaging 250 or more people and is contactless.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Strategic Priorities and Goals
Priority 1: Provide targeted services to PDO partners and agencies in order to develop their capacity, increase collaboration and create greater food access across our region.
Priority 2: Execute an annual fund plan that fully utilizes the development team, and leads to an increase in the number of SHGV donors and philanthropic revenue.
Priority 3: Focus public attention on food insecurity and the work of SHGV to improve understanding and motivate participation in our mission.
Priority 4: Develop and maintain a work environment that team members identify as supportive, positive, mission-focused and appropriately challenging.

• Create a deeper understanding of the needs and opportunities of PDO partners and their region
• Group agencies in a structure which supports the right-sized service for them
• Outline the level and type of services offered for each agency grouping
• With PDO partners and agencies, identify the most underserved areas of the entire region served by SHGV
• Develop a plan with PDO partners and agencies to improve food access to underserved populations over time
• Provide capacity building support to agencies interested in increasing distributions
• Provide opportunities for agencies and PDO partners to connect, collaborate and learn from each other
• Assist PDOs in continued fund development

• Fully staff the development department
• Identify the greatest opportunities to increase SHGV donors and donations
• Evaluate SHGV events as effective development tools
• Develop and execute an annual fund plan that ensures regular engagement of the SHGV donor base
• Deepen the engagement of SHGV institutional and individual major donors
• Develop and document the written processes involved in successfully executing the donor development work

• Develop and execute a 2022-2023 Communications plan (identify SHGV audiences, communication goals)
• Create a media relations plan that results in more and better media placement
• Develop a government engagement strategy that results in more hunger-informed leadership
• Align public awareness/education campaigns which focus attention on food insecurity

• Formalize the Human Resource function and policies
• Implement and maintain active participation in a comprehensive employee wellness plan
• Provide an orientation and ongoing job training which allows employees to do their job with confidence
• Ensure appropriate staffing levels to challenge burnout

SHGV serves over 350,000 people in need each year through our partnership with more than 90 non-profit agencies. Our food pantry partners visit the Food Bank as often as once per week to select groceries , canned products, grains, dairy, meats and fresh produce.

The agencies then distribute the emergency food assistance to those in need. Emergency food assistance can also be obtained through their food pantries and here at SHGV. Providing services like this provides our partners and the ones they serve a very efficient way of receiving the help they need close to their home or work.

​The strength of our program is the ability to pick up large-scale donations from retail stores and distribution centers, by centralizing the collection, storage, and distribution of products through the food bank, more individuals are served through food pantries.

- 632,900 meals distributed in the school based programs since July 2021
- Over 30 school sites are being served since July 2021
- 1,177,350 meals distributed to senior and medically fragile population since July 2021
- Over 3,000 seniors served (unduplicated)
