PACC joined with CHMA in distributing food to families in need about five years ago, said Elva Beltran, the director of PACC.Both non-profit organizations have been in existence for a number of years , PACC for 27 years and CHMA for 78 years.
Last month, about 500 families in need from Tulare County signed up to receive food baskets and more than 700 baskets were expected to be distributed to families on Thursday, Beltran said.

Elva Beltran, executive director of the Porterville Area Coordinating Council, says she hears similar stories all of the time.
Her organization assists people in need by providing them with food, clothing and temporary shelter.
"We hear about infestations of cockroaches, flooring that you have to be careful where you're stepping or you'll fall through, and children getting sick because they're sleeping on the floors in wintertime," Beltran said.

Elva Beltran, executive director of the Community Coordinating Council, said local agencies and private donors have kept 14 families housed at Motel 6 since last week's evictions.
"I'm really proud of these groups that pulled together for this," Beltran said.
The combined effort originally kept a roof over the heads of 18 families, she said.That number dropped to 14 over the course of the past week as four families were able to secure alternate housing, typically with family or friends.
Beltran said the local groups, along with Wal-Mart, have spent nearly $5,000 in the past week on motel vouchers.She said the rush need for emergency housing has tapped out the local private resources.
"The need was just too great," she said."I hear from these families, 'Where are we going to go?'"
Beltran said she began informing the affected families earlier this week that money would soon run out.
Meanwhile worsening plights were taking a toll Thursday on former Paul Bunyan residents.

Elva Beltran, director of PACC, said that the donations from schools and churches help the coordinating council provide food for the needy. For example, Beltran said she assisted one woman on Wednesday who is a widow and mother of three children. The woman receives survivor benefits, which is more money than she would receive on welfare, Beltran said, but after the woman paid her rent, utilities and needs for the home, she had no money left for food.
After receiving the food, Beltran said the woman had tears in her eyes.
"She makes good money," Beltran said.

Elva Beltran, director of PACC since 1997, said they are requesting individuals to host a table for $250 and that "anybody who wants to come," may.
"This is the first time the Coordinating Council has tried doing something like this," Beltran said, "so we'll see how it goes."
Beltran said funding - provided mainly by churches, but also through individuals in the community and the Federal Emergency Management Agency - has declined this year.
"Some churches have not been able to give the monthly offerings they usually give us," Beltran said."So, our funding is down this year.Economically, times are really hard.
"We are unable right now to help families, at least for a while.So, the Salvation Army, in a sense, has taken over."
Beltran said this is only the third time PACC has had to turn people away.
"Usually we are the last resort for people who need help," Beltran said."Everything is fine when we have the money.It's when we don't have the money that we have to make phone calls (to other agencies).It's not like us to turn people away, but it's just at that point where we have to."
Beltran hopes the fund-raising dinner will provide a much-needed financial boost for PACC.
"We expect (the dinner) to be sold out," Beltran said.
