Little Free Pantry Program
We have partnered City of Riverside and Inland Empire Health Plan to launch the Little Free Pantry program. Our team will be working with neighborhood groups, small businesses and non-profits to build 26 free community pantries across Riverside. We are inviting interested members to apply to host or volunteer for a Little Free Pantry and help fight food insecurity their community. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information + applications.
Vital Veggies Initiative
We have partnered with Riverside-based Overflow Farms to provide volunteer support and distribute farm-fresh produce to vulnerable communities. Thanks to volunteer efforts, we have been able to make farm-to-table eating a reality for communities with limited access to fresh produce. Please visit OverFlow Farms Instagram (@overflowfarms) for the latest farm volunteering schedule.
Riverside Mutual Aid volunteers have donated their time to perform virtual 'well-being' check-ins with elderly, sick and isolated Riversiders once a week on Wednesdays. We can connect with you by phone on Wednesdays between 12pm-3pm.
Resource Collection & Distribution
We have been working hard to purchase and source medical/hygiene products to support frontline medical staff and vulnerable populations in Riverside.

If you have extra supplies to donate, please email us at email@example.com with your name and an itemized list of the supplies you have to donate.
People's First Aid
Our mutual aid network has been recruiting licensed EMT's, nurses, and local medical students to provide emergency first aid at local actions and community health advocacy events.
