Become a Partner

Are you interested in being part of a movement of change and compassion in San Bernardino County and are ready to mobilize the necessary resources to improve the health and well-being of the community?


CAPSBC Food Bank receives both USDA commodities and surplus, or salvage, food from various 

Corporations and donors. We then redistribute these products to local non-profit organizations engaged in feeding people who need assistance. We provide all food items to our partners at no cost, hence partners participating in our programs are not allowed to require any monetary exchange from clients to receive this food aid.


Please note that all CAPSBC food bank partner organizations must have a current/valid nonprofit status, provide proof of insurance, and exclusively serve low-income individuals and families in San Bernardino County. Please review the following program descriptions prior to submitting your application or request:


We are currently accepting applications, however our priority areas are the high desert, San Bernardino mountains, and the Morongo basin/low desert. Other areas will be considered and placed on a waiting list.


  • USDA/EFAP – a monthly food distribution program of USDA food commodities

  • Salvage – a food distribution program of assorted donated foods available up to one time per week

Review Process

All applications and requests will be reviewed.
