COVID-19 Response:

Prior to the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, Sierra Community House’s Hunger Relief Program, formerly Project MANA, served approximately 180 families per week through various food assistance programs in Incline Village, Kings Beach, Tahoe City, and Truckee. Since March 2020, food assistance services have increased by 200%. At the peak of the crisis, the Hunger Relief Program served more than 600 families in the North Tahoe -Truckee region. Currently, we are serving over 500 families weekly through ho me delivery and drive-through food distribution programs. With the help of over 100 volunteers this has been made possible. We greatly appreciate the support of the community.

How You Can Help: We need food packing volunteers and delivery drivers at our food distribution sites in Truckee and Incline Village. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at to learn more.
