Pajaro Valley Loaves and Fishes

Image_202009101535

Pajaro Valley Loaves and Fishes is a community-based organization dedicated to alleviating hunger among farmworkers as well as those who are working poor, elderly, disabled, or experiencing homelessness in our area. We help sustain the lives of thousands of individuals by assisting them with nutritious food through our pantry service and daily lunch program and providing education and referrals in cooperation with other agencies.

We operate out of a renovated house in Watsonville, fitted with rooms for food storage, office space, and an industrial kitchen. Due to COVID-19, we quickly modified our operations to meet state and local guidelines to serve our community safely during this time. As a result, we now need help designing an ideal layout to optimize our compact space to operate more efficiently. If you are an Interior Designer or Space Planner, or have similar skills, we would be so grateful to have your help in making our space more effective!

If you have access to AutoCAD or a similar program as well, it would be very helpful for visualizing the new space.

We hope you will be able to support us in this effort; thank you for your consideration!
