Sacramento, California - In response to the devastating fires currently raging across California, the California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) and CA Grown are asking the state’s farmers and ranchers to consider donating food products to needy food banks across the state.
To connect with a food bank serving communities impacted by the ongoing fires, please contact:
Steve Linkhart | Farm to Family Director
California Association of Food Banks
(510) 350 – 9916
Requested products include: ready to eat foods
Area food banks are also in need of cash donations. Please consider giving to:
- Yuba-Sutter Food Bank
- Redwood Empire Food Bank
- Community Action of Napa Valley Food Bank
- Fort Bragg Food Bank
As the country’s largest producer of food, California’s agricultural community has willingly stepped up in times of need. Earlier this month, our farmers and ranchers donated over 122 tons of food to needy families through the California Association of Food Bank’s Farm to Family Program.
For those thousands of victims displaced from their homes, a warm meal can make a world of difference. In this time of great suffering, the generosity of California’ agricultural community is great appreciated.
