Today, PACC helps with the following:

Their referrals for assistance come from churches, CPS, Proteus, Tulare County Health & Human Services, Parenting Network, Porterville Police Department, Tulare Works, and many other local and community organizations.
PACC is the main distribution point for bread. They have partnered with the Porterville BIMBO bread store and PACC picks up an average of 1300 trays of bread per month.
