A campaign designed to educate community members about the reality of hunger in SLO County.
Three Cal Poly Public Relations students, Kelsey Hollenbeck, Chelsea Kitta and Laura Jacobson are interviewing food recipients and volunteers; recording their stories. A series of videos featuring Food Bank clients, volunteers and employees while also incorporating statistics will be launched in March.
The goal of the campaign is to use social media to reach a new audience, to increase awareness of food insecurity and educate people why hunger hurts everyone. We hope that viewers will be inspired by these videos and make donations of time, money or food.
... Happy Birthday ...
Susan and Keith Waibel of Morro Bay had a Hollywood inspired 60th birthday bash. The couple asked their friends and family to bring donations for the Food Bank in lieu of gifts. The couple raised over $1,200 and 60 lbs. of food. What a great way to bring in a new decade of life and celebrate what you can do for others. Thank you for thinking of those we help during your birthday celebration.
Can you believe that Spring is right around the corner? The first day of Spring, March 20th kicks off the10th annual KCOY Spring Food Drive. We have always greatly appreciated your participation and hope that you can find the same willingness and determination to volunteer. We are currently seeking volunteers in groups or as individuals to distribute "wish lists" at local grocery stores throughout the county. Without volunteers we might collect a couple cans of food, but with a smiling face we can fill a barrel within a couple of hours.
March 20th - April 10th
Saturday & Sunday
10 AM - 6 PM
