500 barrels by Halloween?

Though Thanksgiving may seem far away, we're preparing for the rush. To be ready for the holiday season, we need you to start your food drive now!

You may have seen the stories on ABC 7, or CBS 5, or NBC Bay Area, and now you're hearing it here: we need food! Hundreds of food drive barrels are sitting empty in our warehouse as the holiday season approaches -- where they can't do any good.

Don't wait for the holidays -- start your food drive now! We need 500 barrels full and returned by October 31 in order to meet increased holiday demand in November alone. Your school, office or community organization can take 1 or 2 of our beautiful new barrels.

Sign up for a food drive here. You can help us get to 500! Watch our progress on our Facebook page.  

Or we can put your cash to work right away. Set up a Virtual Food Drive and create teams at your company or school to help raise funds to purchase our most-needed items. It's quick, efficient - we'll distribute $4 worth of food for every $1 you donate - and it saves us precious resources.
