KCRA "KIDS CAN" Food Drive

Happening Now!

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  2019 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 county schools that have registered and are provided KCRA donation boxes located in different areas of the school. 

Donation item ideas: canned meat, peanut butter, canned fruits, soup, and holiday meal sides (stuffing, cranberries, green beans, and other items)

For more information  on KCRA “KIDS CAN” food drive you can contact the Food Bank of Nevada  County childrensnutrition@foodbankofnc.org.
