Bring 5 cans of food and receive one free admission and one free carnival ride! These donations help the many families who experience additional hardship imposed during the summer months when school is not in session. Many of the more than 46% of children who receive free and reduced price lunches at school no longer have access to that food and many families turn to us and our agencies to help make up the gap. Your generous donations benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and Orange County Food Bank.
ABC7, Vons, ESPN LA 710, and Southern California regional food banks are partnering up for the 3rd Annual Feed SoCal Food Drive to provide food to the hungry in our communities. The Stuff A Truck Food Drive is part of the month-long "Feed SoCal" hunger awareness campaign. Come visit the Vons store in Costa Mesa on July 25th for the day-long food drive to help fight hunger. You can also participate by visiting your local Vons store and during the month of July and purchasing a $5 bag of groceries to help fight hunger in Southern California communities.
A new year, a fresh start
We have been talking to the people who have recently requested food assistance and while each has a different story to tell, we are struck by how so many have simply hit a rough patch - they have lost their jobs, or are employed but are having a hard time making ends meet. Your donation can change their lives by getting them on the path to a better, more self-sufficient future. Please help now.
