Health Hubs
“There are times when we don’t have money to have food on our table, so the bag of food that I can get from the Clinics helps us a lot…especially in winter when my husband can’t find work and because I am not working because of back issues. “(translated from Spanish) –Lucia Rodas, community member

Join us on Thursday's in Novato to pass out food, set up, and break down... enjoy yourselves while helping the less fortunate in our community.

Free, nutritious food; health education; cooking demonstrations; screenings for diabetes and hypertension - and local resources!

It all comes together at Marin Community Clinics’ weekly Health Hubs, held at our San Rafael and Novato clinics.

Despite its overall high income level, Marin County continues to have great economic disparities. Some can’t afford to put healthy food on the table, and others don’t have easy access to important health information, let alone screening for common chronic diseases.

Building health and communities
The goal of the Health Hubs is to serve families, seniors, and the working poor who often have to choose between buying healthy food, purchasing gas to travel to work, or paying for needed medical care.

Our Health Hubs are unique
The program is multi-lingual and multi-cultural, providing relevant resources while creating opportunities to promote healthy lifetime choices.

Partnership among participants - SFMarin Food Bank, ExtraFood.org, Marin Community Clinics, and many other community-based organizations.

Rain or Shine - We have a drive-through line for the food bank, which is great when the weather is bad.

"Interactive, fun, and family-oriented. It’s about building health and stronger communities." - Florencia Parada, Health Hub Supervisor

Health Hubs are held:

  • every Wednesday in San Rafael (3110 Kerner Blvd.) 2:30 - 5:30 pm in winter; 3 - 6 pm rest of year
  • every Thursday in Novato (6100 Redwood Blvd.); 2:30 - 5:30 pm in winter; 3 - 6 pm rest of year.
