Give youth and seniors in Siskiyou County the nourishment they need.

Siskiyou County has a food crisis: residents of much of the county face long drives and high food prices; 31.8% of children under 18 have limited or uncertain access to food*; and many seniors live in poverty and isolation, without the resources or support to obtain proper nutrition. You can fill their plates! Donate today and make an incredible impact on their lives.

Great Northern Services' innovative Community Services Department finds creative solutions to address Siskiyou County's food crisis. Contributions and donations from caring donors like yourself establish the framework necessary for our programs to access state & federal funding, bringing more resources to the county and increasing the impact of local generosity.

Lack of access to food is a serious concern for some of the most vulnerable members of our community but you can fill their plates! Your donation will provide fresh produce to income-qualifying seniors as extensions of existing programs-giving them better nutritional options and increasing their quality of life. Your help will establish new food pantries in local schools-creating the facilities to bring quality, high protein food to more children in our community. Your generosity will allow the Summer Lunch Program to continue offering the high-quality food that makes it so popular with area youth.

THANK YOU!

Great Northern Services is a non-profit located in Weed that helps residents of all of Siskiyou County with food programs, energy assistance, free weatherization, access to business capital, and community development. Both area hospitals have identified Siskiyou County's high food insecurity rate as a major community health issue and several census tracts are considered to be food deserts. Additional food programs our organization manages include supplying local pantries, coordinating a fresh produce "tailgate party" event series, operating the USDA Commodities distributions program for the county, and running a school holiday snack bag program. The food crisis is real; your gift helps weave the strong safety net necessary for the community to thrive.
