Food & Clothing Outreach

We at the Upland Church of Christ care about the physical needs of our neighbors. Currently, about 95 families/individuals receive food and clothing twice a month during the hours of operation.


This is a labor of love on the part of many of our members. While much of the canned goods are donated by the community through the annual Post Office Food Drive, our members also donate canned goods through out the year and also supply funds for purchasing the fresh bread and eggs included with the bags of food given out. The clothing is completely donated from our members and others in the community. Without the time that some of our members commit to this program, this program would not be possible. 

Schedule

Food is available on the second and fourth Monday of the month from 10am until 11am. Due to holidays (especially Thanksgiving and Christmas), this schedule may be adjusted. Food is passed out on a first come, first serve basis. Numbers are handed out as recipients arrive so that they don't have to wait in line. 


Dates that food and clothing are available are always listed on our calendar which can be viewed here.

Eligibility

Anyone in Upland and surrounding communities is eligible to participate. To receive food, participants are required to show ID and proof of address by showing something that came in the mail (e.g. utility bill). After the initial sign up, recipients need only show something that came in the mail whenever they pick up food. Exceptions are made for the homeless; only an ID is needed.
