Due to the limited supply of fresh produce, there will be no distributions in October. We look forward to resuming service next spring. Please visit our community services page for additional ongoing and seasonal food distribution services.
This program will run June through October for 2022, with distributions at the following four locations:
2nd Tuesday of the month
Yreka – 11 AM
105 Payne Lane’s parking lot
Fort Jones – 2 PM
Parking Lot of 13007 CA Hwy 3
3rd Tuesday of the month
Weed – 11 AM
GNS Storage Facility at 310 Boles Street
Dorris – 2 PM
Butte Valley Community Park at 52900 Hwy 97
Please respect the social distancing measures in place at each location!
Households self-certify for income-based program eligibility.
If you are unable to make it to the scheduled distribution point, you can designate someone else to pick up food for you. The person picking up for you must bring a USDA issued form signed by you (the food recipient) certifying your family size, income, and address. A new form is necessary every time you have someone else pick up food for you.

This popular program allows residents who income qualify to select free, fresh produce for their households. Built on a “Donate Don’t Dump” Foodlink program and locally administered by Great Northern Services, Tailgate Produce Party events bring a semi-truck full of fresh produce for free distribution to multiple Siskiyou County locations every month during the growing season. This program brings an average of over 100,000 lbs. of fresh fruit and vegetables to Siskiyou County residents every year.
To learn more about how you can volunteer or help to support the Tailgate Produce Program, contact Jeremy Porteous at 530-938-4115 ext 116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

“Tell the people who donated ‘thank you.’ It helps a lot. My parents are on SSI and we have a household of 8—this really helps.”

Tailgate Produce Party
We’ve come to the Tailgate Produce Party events for all three years. We have limited income—you worry about buying the meat or the other things. With this program, you can make a complete meal.
