Over the last 50 years, Reaching Out has been to providing food and basic necessities for those who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances. Sometimes, all we need is a helping hand, and we are here to assist families struggling with groceries with an open heart, and welcoming smile.
It is through our Reaching Out Center, we are able to commit to providing FREE groceries to over 3,000 families, seniors, and students each week in Santa Clara County every Wednesday, and Thursday morning.

When our donors contribute to combat the fight against hunger in our communities in the south bay, they're helping 1 in 4 children who face food insecurity in our area.

"I didn't know that kindness could feel that good."
Wow I thought I was going to get (just a bag of groceries) and I got sooooooo much more. I got meat, eggs, bread, snacks for my children’s lunch, and a whole lot of smiles and encouragement. They even took my groceries to my car. I didn’t know that kindness could feel that good.
Founded in 1981 out of a church closet, the program now operates from a 16,000 foot distribution complex. Food distribution is offered twice a week at the Cathedral of Faith campus.
Every Wednesdays & Thursdays
from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Food is distributed through an online registrations, and check-in system for participants of the program. Groceries are loaded directly into the vehicle for a contactless process.
Pick-up dates are issued monthly via email. Confirmation from participants is available for 7 days before the actual pick-up date.
Volunteers are welcome to participate in the wonderful experience of giving back to our community at large. We encourage the support of all who are willing to volunteer their time, and charitable contribution to the program.

Becoming a part of something bigger than that of ourselves is a calling made by many, and sought by the brave few. Only by making a difference in the world are we truly able to be in touch with not not only one another, but the true kindness that lives in each on of our hearts. The groceries distributed to participants of the program are made possible by donations, and the volunteers that have taken up their calling with us here each week at Reaching Out Center. Join us today!
