Let’s Shift Into High Gear For Our Holiday Food Drive!
Our annual food drive for the Contra Costa Food Bank kicked off on November 2 and will run until our winter break.
Why give to the Food Bank?
Because we can make a difference! The Contra Costa and Solano County Food Bank feeds 188,000 people a month. One out of four beneficiaries are children.
What food items should I donate?
One great idea is to involve our kids in the process and let them pick out some of their favorite non-perishable food items.
Most needed items listed on the Food Bank website:
Canned meat, fish & soups
Canned ready to eat meals
Canned vegetables & tomato products
Peanut butter (plastic container)
Iron rich cereal (45% or more of daily value)
100% Fruit juice (48 oz. or less plastic bottles)
Canned fruit (in juice)
Dry beans (any type)
Enriched rice or pasta
Let’s fill those Food Bank donation boxes and show our kids that we care!
