The Food Bank is El Dorado County's largest collaborative charity providing food assistance to over 50 charities in communities from El Dorado Hills to South Lake Tahoe. In 2008, the Bank provided over $3.5 million worth of food to the community on a budget one-seventh of that number. Currently, the Food Bank of El Dorado County's Food Assistance Network – made up of emergency food closets, soup kitchens, maternity homes, women's centers, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, low-income senior programs, low-income children's programs and more – provide food assistance to over 10,000 individuals every month.
