Home Delivery Service

Due to our limited volunteer driver capacity and a high volume of community member signups, we cannot enroll new households for home delivery at this time. Our in-person distributions are open to all community members, and we would love to see you in person at one of our weekly distributions in Truckee, Kings Beach, or Incline Village. Details for these distributions are above. Thank you for your understanding.

It is time for Truckee community members receiving food assistance via home delivery to renew their registration for Home Delivery services. The qualifications for Home Delivery have changed. Community Members have until March 8th to submit a renewal application.

Home Delivery Cancellation

If you no longer require a Blue Bag home delivery, please complete this form to be removed from our home delivery list. You can sign up again at any time using the Blue Bag Home Delivery Service Signup Sheet above.

Other Hunger Relief Services

Let’s Talk Turkey

Each year, Sierra Community House (formerly Project MANA) helps hundreds of local families have a happy, healthy Thanksgiving through the Let’s Talk Turkey Food Distribution.

CalFresh Application Assistance

CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps) can help families and individuals put healthy and nutritious food on the table. CalFresh is a federal supplemental nutrition program for low-income families and individuals that meet certain income guidelines. If you think you might qualify, Sierra Community House can help you fill out your application and send in the necessary paperwork.

Food Donations

In addition to partnering with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, and the Food Bank of Nevada County, Sierra Community House’s Hunger Relief Program depends heavily on the support of the local community. Please know, however, that 60% of all food donations come in during the holiday season/year-end. The increased amount of food donations create logistical challenges to our capacity. Please be patient with us as we process your interest in donating food.

In order to work together more effectively to serve our community, please consider creative options during food drive season.

Virtual Food Drives

Virtual Food Drives are ideal. The food banks have incredible buying power and may be able to do substantially more with your dollar than you. Sierra Community House can provide an entire meal for $2.08! That is substantially less than the cost of purchasing a single item at the grocery store! Complete an application for a Virtual Food Drive.

Traditional Food Drive

If a Traditional Food Drive is your only option, please email us at [email protected] to make arrangements.
