"Tis the Season for Giving"
A special thanks, to the Lake of the Pines community
for all their sincere efforts!
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 happily took part in the support of the 2018 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 stepped up to join in and take part of this giving event. This year thirteen schools registered and had the provided KCRA donation boxes located in different areas of their school. Some had even stepped up in competing within their own classes.
The drive began on October 8th and ran 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.
Our local annual Turkey Food Drive for the Food Bank of Nevada County was sponsored by KNCO Radio Live and located at our home town Save Mart Grocery Store. The Food Bank Truck was present in the Save Mart parking lot from 10AM through 6PM WEDNESDAY November 14th.
We certainly Appreciate and are Thankful for all Donations!
We hope you all had a very HEALTHY and safe THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY!
Saturday, July 7th, 2018 from 10am to 8pm, during the
Nevada Grown Farm Trail, the Food Bank launched its newly named garden, with a community party complete with food and drinks
(donations were accepted).
Sadly, our community lost a true friend when Toni Thompson passed away last year. Now her son John Candeleria is ready to breath some new life back in to his mother’s garden with help from Sean Sullivan,
the Food Bank’s Garden Coordinator (and local Chef). Sean, along with many volunteers, will be hard at work bringing the garden back to life.
Soon the garden will harvest fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables for those in need, and more. He hopes to plan some inviting special events and classes to utilize the garden space.The Food Bank is still in need of some items (tables, chairs, lighting, etc.) to complete the garden and if you can help with any items please contact the Food Bank of Nevada County.

The Food Bank of Nevada County participated in the Nevada County’s first annual Farm Trail Weekend on July 7 & 8, 2018, which ran from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. Agricultural members of Nevada County Grown joined together to celebrate the bounty that Nevada County has to offer. It was a day exploring the county’s beautiful tapestry of pastoral farms woven together by the heritage of farmers and ranchers with a commitment to local food production.
Participating farms and gardens, including the Toni Thompson Memorial Garden, opened their spaces to the public on this special weekend. There was the opportunity to tour the farms and ranches and see their operations in action.There was a chance to learn about their practices directly from the producers and be able to purchase value-added products as well.
