This past week marked the 49th Skyline College Free Drive-Thru Community Market! At this most recent weekly grocery distribution event we served 880 families under the leadership of the SparkPoint program and with the support of 30 volunteers from Skyline College and our local community!
Be advised: The Skyline College Free Community Market will be held in Lot C and Lot F moving forward in order to lower the impact on faculty, staff and students returning to the campus this fall.
Every week each household or family receives almost 50 lbs of groceries, including milk, eggs, pasta, rice, fresh produce, canned goods and dry goods, as well as a protein item (ham, chicken, turkey, etc.). Second Harvest Food Bank calculates that over 1.9 million pounds of groceries have been distributed since our program started in September 2020 and that we have offset over $3.5 million in grocery costs for the most at risk members of our local community! A special thanks goes to SMCCCD employees from SparkPoint, public safety, and facilities, as well as the wonderful volunteers who make this event possible every week.
This event is held at Skyline College every Wednesday, 11:00am-1:00pm and has been extended through December 2021. All staff, volunteers and participants adhere to all COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols at all times.
