Nuestra Casa delivers fresh fruits and vegetables to thousands of people with remote site locations in East Palo Alto, Redwood City, and North Fair Oaks. We recover healthy, high-quality food from distributors around the Bay Area. This reduces peoples’ grocery bills so they can use that money for rent, utilities, or transportation. It reduces the stigma and transportation barriers people face when it comes to using local food pantries. We plan to expand this program to other communities we serve soon. Locations:

1. Casa Círculo (3090 Middlefield in North Fair Oaks)

2. Woodland Apartments (1991 Manhattan in EPA)

3. Rocketship (909 Roosevelt in Redwood City)
