WESTERN EAGLE FOUNDATION-PROGRAMS
Community Food Bank
Western Eagle has 44,000 square feet of space and capacity to handle large donations and inventory from the food industry. Western Eagle promptly stores, refrigerates, or freezes food inventory and can safely process food inventory into family-sized portions in its reclamation department. Every week, local food pantries, other nonprofit agencies providing hunger relief and faith-based organizations pick up pallets of food at the Western Eagle drive-thru and transport to distribution sites in the outlying and rural areas of Riverside County, San Bernardino County and San Diego County.
Working together Western Eagle helps to fill neighbors’ plates.

“My family is very large and all my life we have struggled to find places to shop that are reasonably priced. During the pandemic it was more difficult than ever to find accessible essentials. We practically depended on the food boxes you provided. It was such a relief to find a place that had groceries that could last all of us for more than a week. Being able to walk in and have people helping find what you need was such a relief. Having over five children to shop for, it can be stressful remembering what to get, your workers were there to ease that struggle. In addition to the good prices on food, access to cheap health and beauty products are easier than ever to get. Your organization has helped not only my family, but many of our friends and relatives as well.”
Western Eagle Foundation offers Senior Discounts every Tuesday, up to 20% off on all food and other goods. Seniors may use their SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) cards to not only purchase food from the bargain store, but also take advantage of the customized food box. Because nutrition is so important, food boxes are usually filled with cereal, pasta and sauce, easy to eat canned vegetables and fruits, rice and beans, along with fresh bread, fruits and vegetables to be selected and used to make delicious meals. Additionally, a Medicare Benefits Consultant is usually on-site every Tuesday.
