We Are Making a Difference!

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.

"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.

Are You Ready To Make a Difference?

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!
