Holiday Bag campaign raises nearly 3 million pounds!

The results are in and our 2014 Food For Families Holiday Bag campaign was one of our biggest and best years ever!

Thanks to your generosity, we raised 2,904, 211 pounds of food for hungry families through our annual Food For Families Holiday Bag Campaign! That means we didn’t just meet our goal of 2 million pounds, we completely smashed it! In fact, we beat last year’s total by over 35 % and that made it possible to help thousands more men, women, and children escape hunger this holiday season.

Every one of your donations made an impact in ending hunger. For each Food For Families bag donated, Raley’s Family of Fine Stores more than doubled that donation to our food bank partners. What’s more, the Holiday Bag was full of fresh, healthy food like milk, peanut butter, whole-wheat pasta and fresh bananas and carrots. These items were hand selected to do more than just fight hunger, but to help families in crisis build wholesome, nutritious meals. Together, we raised enough food to serve over 2.4 million of them. An amazing accomplishment, indeed!

On behalf of everyone at Food For Families, thank you – 2.9 million times!
