The Food Bank of Nevada County, the County of Nevada, Twin Ridges Elementary School District, and the San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center are working together to provide food to the San Juan Ridge Community. On Tuesday, October 13, from 10am to noon, there will be a drive-thru food distribution on the Oak Tree Campus. Although the FRC’s food pantry has been feeding the community for years, this drive-thru distribution will make it possible for people to access far larger amounts without ever having to get out of their vehicles. We hope that as many people as possible will be able to take advantage of this event. For more info, please call 292.3171.


We ask that you please do not leave donations of any kind at our site. Items left unattended quickly become trash that we then have to pay someone to clean up. We will be happy to receive your donations when we re-open.

The San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center remains CLOSED for all other services until further notice.

We continue to regularly monitor email at sjrfrc@nevco.org

Help is also available over the phone by calling 530-292-3171

It's OK not to be OK

Recent events may have you feeling scared, stressed, and overwhelmed – it’s ok not to be ok all the time, and during hard times like this, you may need more support and connection. Practice self-care, ease back into your routines, talk to others about how you’re feeling, and speak up or seek help if you need extra support right now. For more resources, go to

Take care of each other. Stay safe.
