Our Holiday Food Drive

This year Arnie and I got involved with a campaign to collect food from our neighbors for the Contra Costa Food Bank. We visited four neighborhoods in our area talking to as many residents as we could and those we did not connect with left a grocery bag at their doorstep. We left instructions for those who wished to contribute to give us a call and we would pick up their gift bag. It took 2 trips and 2 cars to get all the food delivered.

We are so excited by the generosity of so many people who got in the spirit. We are proud to report that we delivered 1,500 pounds of food to the Contra Costa County food bank.

We also learned from the personnel at the Food Bank due to the generosity of so many people in the  County, the Food Bank anticipates there is enough food to help them feed the over 130,000 families for the next couple of months.

Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to help.
