About this Program
Fontana's recent distribution of nearly $100,000 in direct household grants through the Fontana Eats program stands as a testament to the city's unwavering commitment to its residents' well-being. Recognizing the economic and food instability exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Fontana prioritized fortifying community resilience by directly supporting households experiencing significant hardship. This impactful program, just one in a series of city initiatives, serves as a masterclass in responsive governance and community empowerment.
The accompanying graph, beyond mere statistics, paints a vivid picture of the program's reach and impact. Each data point represents a household grappling with food insecurity, a vulnerability accentuated by the pandemic. The surge in applications demonstrates the program's acute understanding of the community's needs, while the high processing rate showcases its efficient and timely response. This swift and targeted intervention not only alleviated immediate hardship but also sent a powerful message: Fontana stands with its residents, during crisis and beyond.
But Fontana Eats goes beyond mere financial assistance. It represents a proactive investment in community resilience. By directly empowering residents to meet their basic needs, the program fosters a sense of agency and self-sufficiency. This, in turn, paves the way for long-term economic recovery and social mobility, strengthening the fabric of the community and laying the foundation for a more equitable future.
Fontana's story isn't just about statistics and graphs; it's about compassion, proactive intervention, and community empowerment. The Fontana Eats program stands as a beacon of hope and resilience, demonstrating how a city can effectively navigate complex challenges and prioritize the well-being of its residents. As we move forward, this program serves as a model for other communities seeking to build resilient and equitable futures for their citizens.

The Mayor’s Manufacturing, Transportation & Logistics Councils were founded on November 8, 2017, through a partnership with Mayor Acquanetta Warren and the Fontana Chamber of Commerce. As Fontana’s key industries, our manufacturers, transporters, and logistics businesses not only facilitate the production and transportation of goods throughout Southern California – they also provide our residents with rewarding career paths. These councils were created to facilitate productive and insightful dialogue between these crucial businesses and the office of the Mayor.
Honoring our History
Our city’s history is interwoven with Henry Kaiser, who came to Fontana in 1942 and established Kaiser Steel to manufacture airplanes and ships in crucial support of America’s efforts in WWII. Later, his interest in health led to the creation of Kaiser Permanente. The city was transformed from an agricultural town to a center of industry. Today, our manufacturing industry remains a thriving economic driver for the Inland Empire and Southern California regions.
