Sacramento, California - State employees donating fresh produce last week at the kick-off event for the 2015 State Employees Food Drive, at the Department of Public Health in Sacramento. 6,550 pounds of produce were donated, including contributions from participating local farms. A Sacramento Food Bank truck was on-hand to quickly transport the items back to its warehouse for distribution.

CDFA is again serving as statewide coordinator for the food drive. An event later this week, the annual Turkey Drive, will collect frozen turkeys for the holiday tables of needy families.
