The Blessing Box Foundation, Inc. is committed to providing nutritional assistance to those who are hungry throughout Kern County. Our goal is to grow a network of independently sponsored Blessing Boxes and to provide our partners with guidance and support as needed.


What is a Blessing Box?

Blessing Boxes are like Little Free Libraries, but instead of books, they are filled with non-perishable food and hygiene items. They are open 24 hours every day, seven days a week. Anyone is welcome to stop and take whatever they need – no referral or voucher is needed.

But How Does it Work?

The miracle  of the Blessing Box is that it’s not just about taking what you need – it’s about giving what you can. Do you have something extra this week? Drive by a Blessing Box, open the door and put it in.
