Auburn Interfaith Food Closet extends hours 

Auburn Interfaith Food Closet (AIFC) will begin offering evening hours every Wednesday.

The hours will be from 4-7 p.m. each Wednesday, in addition to the food closet’s normal hours of Monday-Friday and the last Saturday of the month from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

“We took a recent survey of our guest and one of the results that we discovered was the need for later hours, especially for those who may be working or have limited transportation during our normal business hours,” AIFC Director of Operations Sandy Bassett said.

Said AIFC President Andy Hayes, “Our guests spoke, and we listened, and now we are pleased to offer these additional servicing hours. These extended hours will be staffed for those wishing to donate food as well.”

AIFC is grateful for the support of the community through donations and willingness to volunteer. The food closet has the resources to expand its services and continues to be dedicated to exploring more opportunities to serve those with hunger insecurities because of that generosity.

In need of food? AIFC serves individuals and families living in Central Placer County, from Loomis to Emigrant Gap and Lake of the Pines to Foresthill. There are no income requirements to register as an AIFC client. For more information, simply call 530-885-1921. The AIFC is located at 1788 Auburn Ravine Road, just off the Foresthill exit on Interstate 80.
