Clients are mostly elderly people, single mothers, and persons with disabilities. During the dry season when there is a lot of work the Nosara Food Bank feeds about 25-30 families. At the height of the rainy season the Nosara Food Bank assists 45 families. The Nosara Food Bank partners with the Banco de Alimentos de Costa Rica to procure food for a small administrative fee, and purchases additional food in bulk from Pali and other low-cost stores.
