History
In 1968, 18 faith organizations came together to create Pomona Council of Churches to provide emergency food in the PomonaValley. In the late 70’s the agency sheltered refugees from Vietnam and Cambodia which transformed the shelter into a haven for homeless families and single women. A year-round Certified Farmers’ Market in Pomona began in 1981, bringing together local farmers and residents. In 2015 the agency began offering rapid re-housing services for families and Claremont Homeless Advocacy Program joined our organization, expanding our services to those experiencing homelessness to include single men. With assistance of Kaiser funding, we began our gleaning program in 2009, and began collaborating with Amy’s Farm in Ontario in 2015, after the Constantine garden was sold, to offer more fresh produce to our clients. We have offered the services through utilization of dedicated volunteers. Our Food Security Program has offered basic staple foods since the late 60’s. We now operate five food pantries (Ontario, Pomona, South Pomona, San Dimas, Claremont), and two once/month distributions (Upland, Chino), offering staple foods and fresh produce to some 4,000 no and low income individuals and families monthly.
