Placer County Food Bank

The Face of Hunger

Hunger is an all but hidden epidemic in Placer Food Bank’s communities. Nearly 71,000 individuals in El Dorado, Nevada, and Placer Counties do not know where there next meal will come from.

More often than not, the hungry are hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet. Many are forced to choose between paying for rent, medicine, or transportation and buying food; missing daily meals or going without food for days.

Local Hunger Facts:

  • Hunger is a reality for 1 in 7 individuals living in El Dorado, Nevada, and Placer Counties
  • 1 in 5 of these individuals is a child
  • 30% of seniors in our region report having to choose between food and paying for medicine or medical care
