Fresh, healthy, locally grown food: It’s great for our bodies and great for the environment.Yet, for the millions of families facing hunger, farm-fresh produce is often out of reach.

In fact, nearly 90% of at-risk children don’t eat enough vegetables daily and just a quarter consume the recommended amount of fruits. And just 25% of children in need consume enough fruits.Our food banks are working hard to meet the need, but access to fresh food can be limited – and costly.

That’s why Raley’s Food For Families program is proud to partner with the Sacramento Farm to Fork Festival to help bring fresh fruits and vegetables where they’re needed most.

When you donate to the Food For Families Fresh Drive, we’ll partner with local food banks to provide fresh, healthy foods to individuals in need.

 

It’s easy to give.

  • Visit us at the Food For Families tent at the Farm to Fork Festival and help us donate over 500 apples!
  • Give online at foodforfamilies.org/donate
  • Donate through Facebook
  • Or text ENDHUNGER to 85944

As always, 100% of every donation will go directly to feeding local families. And Raley’s will match gifts received up to $5,000! To learn more about our efforts to bring the farm to every fork, check our Food For Families fresh video.
