The Orangevale Food Bank continues to be blessed through the participation of many community organizations this season with food drives. Many schools and churches have held non-perishable food drives to help stock the shelves and containers of the food bank. The local Sprouts, Safeway and Raley’s supermarkets have committed their resources and time in supporting the “Buy a Bag” promotion. WalMart and Safeway hosted multiple successful weekend food drives with the help of many wonderful community volunteers. Over 30,000 pounds of food was collected to help fill boxes with Thanksgiving dinner items to be distributed to over 350 families in need of a little assistance this season.
The Orangevale Food Bank would like to thank all those who volunteered their time, talents and treasures to make this season’s food drive a huge success.
Food drives help the food bank stay supplied throughout the year. You can help continue fulfilling this need by organizing a food drive by your local business or organization. Please email the Orangevale Food Bank at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
