Food assistance available for Caldor Fire evacuees

Staff Report

Food resources are available for those evacuating from the Caldor Fire, according to a news release from the Nevada Department of Agriculture.

Many evacuation shelters offer food assistance, but for individuals in need not staying at shelters, additional resources are available.

“We know it is hard to leave your home in an emergency like this, and food should be the last thing you’re worried about,” NDA Director Jennifer Ott said in the release. “The emergency shelters are offering food and shelter for evacuees, but for those opting for alternative accommodations, additional food options are still available.”

The following is a list of community food sites in Carson City, Douglas, Lyon, Storey and Washoe counties where individuals can access on-site hot meals and take-away food.

These sites provide food through the Emergency Food Assistance Program, a USDA-funded program for income-eligible individuals (proof of income is not required), as well as non-TEFAP food anyone can access, regardless of income.

Anyone in need of food is encouraged to call the site nearest to them in advance. This list does not include any emergency feeding centers opened specifically for fire response.
