Utilizing Fontana's Resources for the Less Fortunate


City Link is a community ran service authorized by The Water of Life Community Church to help those in need. From fresh vegetables to boxed cereal, they have managed to keep the food bank open for more than three years. They also offer a convenient thrift shop, homeless care packages, as well as community service and job opportunities to residents that need them. The food bank operates Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. (stc)
