Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church, in collaboration with other community organizations, opened the Food and Resource Support Center last fall at 10111 E Street in historic downtown Truckee to help people in need.
The FRSC provides a hot meal every Thursday between noon and 2 p.m., with the cooking and serving of the meal rotating among members of Assumption Parish, the Lutheran/Presbyterian Church, and the Church of the Mountains. Representatives from social service agencies are present when the mid-day hot meals are served so that clients can apply for needed services. We are currently looking for other churches or organizations to participate in the rotation. Soon the FRSC will open a Clothing Closet for the distribution of used clothing in good condition. Donations of food and clothing can be brought to the FRSC during hours of operation. For monetary donations, please make checks payable to the Food and Resource Support Center and mail to the following: Food and Resource Support Center, c/o Assumption Parish, 10930 Alder Drive, Truckee, CA 96161.
