NBC BAY AREA/SAFEWAY ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE IS HAPPENING IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER.

THE KIWANIS CLUB OF THE SAN RAMON VALLEY WILL BE SUPPORTING THE FOOD BANK OF CONTRA COSTA AND SOLANO BY REMINDING THE PUBLIC ABOUT THE FOOD DRIVE ON NOVEMBER 20TH

The Kiwanis Club of San Ramon Valley are teaming team up again with NBC Bay Area and Safeway Grocery Stores to help support the 17th annual Food Drive.

On November 20th and with help from over 30 volunteers, including Key Club high schoolers, members of the National Charity League, Boys Team Charities, and friends/family, the Kiwanis Club will be encouraging shoppers to make a donation to the Food Bank at checkout. Safeway will have scannable tickets at every cash register, that will be a $10 donation to the Food Bank of Contra Costa/Solano. Every donation will go directly to help provide food to our neighbors most in need this holiday season. Kiwanis will be matching donations made at the four Safeway locations in the San Ramon Valley, up to $1,000.00 per store.

"We are excited to participate in the NBC Bay Area/Safeway Food Drive this year. We missed seeing everyone in 2021, and while the world is getting closer to normal, people are still hungry and need extra help, especially with the holidays coming up” says Nancy Bray, Chair of the Kiwanis 2021 Food Drive.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Founded in 1915 in Detroit and with headquarters now in Indianapolis, Kiwanis International is a thriving organization of service and community minded individuals who support children and young adults around the world. More than 600,000 Kiwanis family members in 96 countries make their mark by responding to the needs of their communities and pooling their resources to address worldwide issues.
