Caring Choices operates a donation-based basic needs pantry. Located in our Chico and Redding offices we are always accepting donations of canned and nonperishable foods, frozen items, and produce. 

Thanks to generous donations from NCAC and the California Department for Public Health we are able to offer free confidential services in our offices and also in a variety of non-clinical settings.
