Springtime is a typically slower time of year for food donations. We are looking for individuals or groups willing to coordinate a neighborhood food drive to encourage giving. It’s both meaningful and easy to do.
Simply pick up paper bags from the Food Bank and create a flyer to distribute. Place bags on your neighbor’s doorsteps and come back a week later to collect the food.
Last month, the students from Cal High’s Interact Club in San Ramon collected over 1,300 pounds of food through their annual Neighborhood Food Drive!
The food collected helps people receiving assistance from our partner agencies and senior citizens participating in our Senior Food Program. We get feedback that they appreciate the variety of foods that food drives bring.
