APPLE VALLEY, Ca. – Feed My Sheep, a food bank in the Town of Apple Valley has teamed up with the city to provide food to the members of the community who are most vulnerable. The delivery of these goods are in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is planned to meet the needs of the elderly, disabled, and those who are homeless. Anyone who meets one of the requirements can request a food and supply delivery using the electronic form or by calling (760)247-6488. .
In response to the increased need for additional resources, the Town’s Community Development Department designated $17,000 of additional U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) CDBG dollars to fund increased food purchases for Feed My Sheep.
“With the additional funding, Feed My Sheep will be able to expand delivery to residents recommended to quarantine during these unprecedented times,” said Mayor Scott Nassif. “During these critical days, we all need to be good neighbors and care for the most vulnerable in our community, and we at the Town are glad to help.”
On Thursday, staff and volunteers from Feed My Sheep purchased food from Winco and Stater Brothers Markets for Friday’s distribution. In addition to basic food and supplies, food orders will come with a box of cookies donated by the Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council.
