Community pantry opens in Truckee

Sierra Community House

Sierra Community House has launched a Community Pantry format in Truckee, which allows individuals to select their own food items, which in turn empowers the community and reduces waste.  The new client choice distribution model incorporates dignity, empowerment and connection into hunger relief services, according to a press release.

Food distribution in Kings Beach already operates with client choice principles, while Incline Village still functions as a traditional model due to the logistical challenges that come with a pop-up pickup and home delivery distribution, according to the release. The agency said that it is looking to rework all its programs in the area. | sierracommunityhouse.org

Food distribution schedule:

  • KINGS BEACH | Wednesdays from 3 to 4:30 p.m., 265 Bear St.
  • TRUCKEE | Tuesdays from 12 to 6 p.m., 12116 Chandelle Way, Suite D2.
  • INCLINE VILLAGE | Thursdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m., 341 Village Blvd.
