Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County (CAPSBC) was awarded a $20,000 grant by Stater Bros. Charities to support one of its newest programs, a Mobile Community Kitchen.

Stater Bros. Charities is at the forefront of helping to address food insecurity in San Bernardino County. The mobile program will roll out in 2023 as an expansion of CAPSBC's other mobile services such as the Mobile Shower, Mobile Laundry, Mobile Offices, and Mobile Food Pantry. These services are targeted for remote areas of the county to meet the needs of the most vulnerable residents. The Mobile Community Kitchen will provide nutritious hot meals to food-insecure communities. CAPSBC’s goal is to increase the accessibility of healthy hot meal options to food deserts and underserved communities comprised of elderly, disabled, and homeless individuals.

"We are honored to be a recipient of these funds. Stater Bros. Charities and Stater Bros. Markets have consistently and generously supported our organization with both monetary and food donations,” said Patricia Nickols-Butler, CAPSBC President & Chief Executive Officer. "Partnerships like this help create a lasting impact in our communities. Last year alone, 214,415 individuals had access to nutritious hot meals prepared by our 27 partner soup kitchens and over 16 million pounds of food. Our new Mobile Community Kitchen will help increase the number of hot meals and will help us reach communities in the most remote areas of the county."

"Stater Bros. Charities appreciates all that CAPSBC does not only to feed those in need but just as importantly, to feed their souls," said Director of Stater Bros. Charities Danielle Oehlman. "In addition to food, CAPSBC's mobile services such as Mobile Shower, Mobile Laundry, and Mobile Offices perform the important role of helping every person maintain their dignity."

 

Stater Bros. Charities and Stater Bros. Markets are valued partners in the agency’s work to relieve hunger in local communities and CAPSBC is grateful to receive their support for the newest mobile service program.
