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.
