Fall is the season at the Food Bank of Nevada County, when efforts are joined with KCRA and our community’s local schools, when we come together to end child hunger as best we “CAN!”
Therefore, we have been taking part in the support of the
KCRA "KIDS CAN" Food Drive!
The Food Bank of Nevada County has been involved since 2003 in support of this wonderful Food Drive in donating canned and non-perishable foods to help those in need.
Many schools in our local region have stepped up to join in and take part of this giving event. This year thirteen schools have registered and have the provided KCRA donation boxes located in different areas of their school. Some have even stepped up in competing within their own classes.
The drive began on October 8th and runs until November 2nd this year. For more information on KCRA “KIDS CAN” food drive you can contact the Food Bank of Nevada County or go to KCRA.com/kidscan.
The Food Bank of Nevada County distributes community-donated food and USDA commodities from four locations in Nevada County throughout the month. We also provide healthy school snacks and summer lunches to children of low-income families. Click below for more information on our programs.
The Food Bank of Nevada County obtains and distributes donated, surplus, and purchased food to people in need in Nevada County.
