We now have seved over 14,000 Families and Seniors since our inception. On a weekly basis we have between 25 seniors and 110 families coming to our doors on Fridays. Seniors arrive anytime between 2:00 to 2:30pm, followed by families from 2:30 to 5:00pm. We ask that if it is your first time, please to come at 3:30pm and we will gladly sign you up then. Please bring a photo ID and Proof of windsor residency when you come (water bill or mail of some kind with your address on it).
The volunteers pack bags on Friday mornings between 8:15 and 10:30am, then we hand the food out between 2:00 and 5:00pm.
Six days a week, we have Drivers who pick up our food at Raley's and Safeway. We also purchase food at the Redwood Empire Food Bank, and their trucks deliver produce to WSA the first two fridays of each month.
WSA Food Pantry Garden Program
WSA has 3 garden beds in the Windsor Town Green Community Garden where fresh local vegetables are grown to add to our food distribution program. The vegetables are organically grown and harvested by volunteers. Our garden has provided hundreds of pounds of fresh veggies, such as tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, salad greens, broccoli and radishes to our neighbors in need. We are always grateful for volunteers to help with our Food Pantry Garden. If you are interested in learning more about our program and lending a helping hand, you can call WSA at 707-838-6947.
