Most people know that the Mission feeds men, women, and children who are homeless and on the street. But our mission goes beyond helping those who come to us. We are active in the community, supplying food boxes to families unable to adequately feed their children in addition to the 8,200 meals we serve at UGM every month.

Weekly Food Basket Pickup and Guidelines:

  • Pickup times are Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning at 1:00 pm and ending at 2:00 pm.
  • You must call the day before to request a food box. To sign up call (916) 447-3268 during regular business hours (8:00 am to 4:00 pm)
  • You can receive one food box, every 90 days for Families with Children and every 30 days for Seniors over 62.
