Week One: 75 Families Served!

Thanks to many community contributors including our local Orangevale View newspaper, the word was out about today’s opening day of Orangevale Food Bank. We expected a crowd, but were overwhelmed with 75 Orangevale families visiting for help with this month’s groceries. We will continue to be open weekly on Thursday mornings from 9am – 12:30pm, and our food-raising efforts will need to kick into high gear to make sure we keep the shelves full. We will be looking to schools, churches, community clubs, and local leaders to coordinate food drives as well as provide ongoing financial support to purchase groceries each week.
