There is no other way to put it, hunger just hurts more during the holidays. For many in the Bay Area, this time of year shines a spotlight on just how much food insecurity affects their lives. That’s why ABC7 and Bay Area food banks are working together to collect much needed food and cash donations this holiday season. Everyone can take part on Wednesday, December 12 with ABC7 ‘s ‘7 Ways to Give’ for a holiday gift that really makes a difference!
Throughout the day ABC7 (KGO) will be broadcasting live from Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek. Familiar faces from ABC7 News will feature stories from Food Bank donors and clients, and Food Bank staff will be on hand to let you know how your donation supports the programs and services that help us put food on the table for over 149,000 people every month.
