Food Bank

3rd Wed of the month, 9:30am-12:30pm

Every third Wednesday of the month, Whistlestop participates in the Supplemental Food Program, where on average, 66 older adults and 5 children receive food boxes that include a variety of quality foods such as tuna, rice, cheese, pasta and peanut butter. This is a Federal program being offered in Marin for the first time. It is designed to serve those individuals who do not participate in the WIC food stamp program. If you live in Marin, are 60 years old and your income is less than $1,265/month (or you have a child younger than 6 years old and your family does not participate in WIC), you may be eligible for the Supplemental Food Program. Food boxes include a variety of quality foods such as tuna, rice, cheese, pasta and peanut butter. Please bring original form of ID, proof of income, and proof of residency.
