Cordova Community Food Locker

Melanie Rochin

The Cordova Community Food Locker provides families in need with a three-day supply of food free of charge, feeding everyone who comes.

The Food Locker's clients come from all walks of life, including the unemployed, seniors, the homeless, working poor and newly arrived immigrants. The Cordova Community Food Locker is part of a food network and receives financial support from the Rancho Cordova area's many churches, civic organizations and private citizens.


The Cordova Community Food Locker was founded in 1987 by a group of concerned citizens in Rancho Cordova who saw a real need for a local food locker. They set a goal to develop a "community based" food locker. This was not a small project! Generous people with great ideas started pitching in to make the food locker a reality. St. John Vianney Church offered a trailer with a walk-in refrigeration unit located on their property, and more than 150 people volunteered to help. On April 1, 1987, The Cordova Community Food Locker became a reality, serving more than 1,500 individuals per month during the first year.


The Cordova Community Food Locker has been going strong for 22 years. With help and donations from citizens and organizations in Rancho Cordova, they are now able to provide food assistance to 5,000 hungry people each month. Since it opened its doors, the Cordova Community Food Locker has fed over 330,000 hungry families and more than one MILLION individuals!

The Cordova Community Food Locker would not be possible without their volunteers and generous donors. Volunteers, young and old, are always needed and welcomed! The Cordova Community Food Locker is a non-profit organization and as such is covered under the "Good Samaritan Act". All donations whether food, money, or volunteer hours, are needed and appreciated.
The hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Volunteer Power

The Cordova Community Food Locker is powered by volunteers. Many thanks to the loyal volunteers who are there to help feed hungry people week after week, year after year. To volunteer, call us at 364-8973.

A Vital Network

The Cordova Community Food Locker is part of a food network that is organized by California Emergency Foodlink, a non-profit organization that distributes food to food banks and closets across the state. Raley's Food for Families, the State Employees Food Drive, the Postal Worker's Food Drive, KCRA Kids Can Food Drive, private donations and the government's USDA food programs all are part of California Emergency Foodlink. Local donations from groups like Boy and Girl Scouts and several civic organizations, plus many caring Rancho Cordova citizens, also stock our shelves.

Oh, Baby!

One of the biggest recurring needs of the Cordova Food Locker is baby food and baby products, such as disposable diapers. If you are interested in helping the youngest and most vulnerable of our neighbors, a donation earmarked for baby food is a great way to lend a helpful hand.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday
9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
