On the 1st Wednesday of each month, our Palo Alto Rotary Club helps Nuestra Casa distribute food to food insecure families at the Rise City Church, 1305 Middlefield Road, Redwood City. Up to 5 of us will volunteer from 2:00-4:00 and/or 4:00-6:00 on Wednesday, July 6. Please wear a face mask and your Palo Alto Rotary Club t-shirt if you have one. Neighborhood parking has a 2-hour limit, so if you volunteer for both shifts, you may park in the church parking lot.
Nuestra Casa is a past Palo Alto Rotary grant recipient. Their food distribution program serves 6,000 people per month in East Palo Alto and Redwood City. They 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 using local food pantries. By reducing food waste, we're also reducing greenhouse gases. Learn more at
