Senior Brown Bag Program
Enables seniors age 60 or older to remain independent as long as possible by giving them a “Brown Bag” with approximately 10 to 14 food items twice a month. Items may include fresh fruit, canned vegetables, oatmeal, bottled beverages, pasta and canned meat. Seniors pick up Brown Bags from 11 sites throughout Napa County, or volunteer drivers deliver food to those who are infirm or disabled. An average of 220 households are served monthly.

Non-Profit Agency Access
The Food Bank contracts with 42 local non-profit organizations who serve vulnerable, low-income people, allowing them access to a low-cost source of nutritious food. Once a week these organizations can shop for USDA Commodities and/or bulk food for only 19 cents per pound or at wholesale cost – based on the source of the food. This allows local non-profits to offset their food budget and gives them better access to nutritious food along with the ability to serve larger numbers of clients when needed. Registered agencies may shop once a week at the warehouse from 8 to noon or 1 to 2:30 every Monday or Wednesday except when closed for holidays.
Friday Free Market
Friday Free Market is a program to provide more fresh fruits and vegetables to the Napa community on a regular basis. It occurs every Friday at various locations. Often, other non-perishable food items are offered as well. There is no income eligibility.
