How can you help this holiday season?
The holiday season is quickly approaching! Are you wondering how you can help?
Volunteer: We have several ways you can help. Our greatest need is for volunteers to hand out "wish lists" at local grocery stores to encourage shoppers to donate. This opportunity is available to volunteers of all ages. A second way to help would be to help sort donations at either of our warehouse locations in Paso Robles or Oceano. These are just a couple of the opportunities, please contact Megan Chicoine (805) 835-6716 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Donate: For every $1 you donate, the Food Bank can distribute 7 meals to those in need. Donate online or mail a check to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County, P.O. Box 2070 Paso Robles, CA 93447. All donations to the Food Bank are tax deductible.
Host a food & funds drive: Want to get your community involved? Host a food & funds drive. We will make it easy for you by providing the barrel, money boxes and support!
Sponsor an event: Whether it is sponsoring our campaign, holding an event that spreads awareness, the Food Bank's partners are an essential part of our fight to end hunger in our community. To become a partner in hope please contact Wendy Lewis at (805) 235-0919.
Removing Hurdles for the Hungry...
Governor Brown signed a package of bills to improve food security and support for lower-income seniors and working families in California. On October 6th, the Governor signed Bill AB 152, sponsored by California Association of Food Banks, which creates income tax credits to growers for voluntary donations to food banks. Bill AB 6 has also been signed, eliminating finger imaging as a requirement in the CalFresh application process. California will be the last state to eliminate the requirement that food-stamp recipients get fingerprinted. The changes in food policy are a great cause for celebration as the need for Food Bank assistance continues to grow. This will allow families that qualify to use Federal dollars to support our local economy.
