Since 1987 KCRA has been partnering with local food banks like us to bring in canned and non-perishable foods during the holiday season helping fight against hunger in our community. This year from October 11th to November 12th the Kids Can! program continues at our local schools where you can donate and support our community. If you want to get your school involved call our office or visit the Kids Can! website to register and make a difference in the fight against hunger.
This year the Food Bank of Nevada County is hosting the Bridge of Giving Fundraiser with support from the Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Reality at the South Yuba River Old Bridge on November 7th from 10am to 3pm. This event is an extremely fun time as we build a bridge of cans all the way across the South Yuba River Bridge. We would love for you to stop by and help us reach our goal. Support us in the fight against hunger in our county.
The Food Bank of Nevada County is teaming up with Save Mart and KNCO -Star 94 FM for the annual Turkey and Food Donation drive. Last year, this event gathered more than 100 turkeys for the hungry families in our community. With your help, we can make this happen once again!
This year’s event will feature BIG RED the Save Mart race car, Tom Fitzsimmons as “Tom the Turkey” and Nevada County Food Bank’s own Executive Director as “McSqueely."
Stop by and make a donation or take a picture with the crew at The Grass Valley Save Mart on November 10th from 9am to 4pm.
We hope you will join us. Gobble Gobble! Oink Oink!
With the end of the year approaching fast and major holidays right around the corner, the 5th annual Lake of the Pines food drive is coming up on December 3rd from 7am to 5pm for families in need this holiday season. We are asking our community to donate canned and other nonperishable foods at the Front Gate Exit or Clubhouse Circle.
We hope you will join us and support the fight against hunger in Nevada County.
