BENEFITING: MARIN COMMUNITY CLINIC
“There are times when we don’t have money to have food on our table, so the bag of food that I can get from the Clinics helps us a lot…especially in winter when my husband can’t find work and because I am not working because of back issues.“ (translated from Spanish)– Lucia Rodas
Health Hubs offers Free nutritious food; health education; cooking demonstrations; screening for diabetes & hypertension, Zumba & community resources twice weekly in San Rafael and Novato.
The program is multi-lingual and multi-cultural, providing relevant resources while creating opportunities to promote healthy lifetime choices. Partnership among participants – SF/Marin Food Bank, ExtraFood.org, Marin Community Clinics, and many other community-based organizations. Rain or Shine - We have a drive-through line for the food bank, which is great when the weather is bad.
“Interactive, fun, and family-oriented. It’s about building health and stronger communities.” Florencia Parada, Health Hub Supervisor
We need a steady stream of volunteers to help set up, pass out food and break down after it is all over. The program is a life saver for over 600 families per week.
My goal is to encourage recurring gifts of less than $50 per month to support a family in need of food for their table. Visit http://www.marinclinic.org/support-us/donate/ to set up your monthly gift.
