Food was being handed out once again Wednesday in San Luis Obispo County.

The distribution events in Cayucos, Los Osos, Arroyo Grande and San Miguel come a day before the SLO Food Bank closes down operations for a week to complete an annual inventory audit.

The food bank calls its partnership with Cayucos unique because “we actually deliver food twice per month, and the group of volunteers who run the distribution source additional food in order to offer residents weekly access to emergency food,” officials said, adding that Cayucos Community Church is one of 60 Neighborhood Food Distribution locations throughout the county where food is handed out monthly.

The food bank also provides emergency food to many local non-profits.

KSBY’s Season of Hope campaign this year brought in nearly $50,000 to the SLO Food Bank.
