Will You Be My Valentine?
From February 1st - March 3rd Food 4 Less locations in Atascadero, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo are becoming collection sites for Valentines, as people respond to the Have A Heart Food & Funds Drive, donating Valentines to those in need. We'll deliver those Valentines in the form of nutritious food for the families who are not making ends meet, are homeless, or are seniors living on fixed incomes. In the past 2 years, together with our community we have raised $30,000 through this event. Customers can make a minimum donation of $1, symbolizing their commitment to help end hunger in our community. Although food donations are always appreciated, monetary donations are really the bread and butter that allow the Food Bank to maximize our effort.
Thank you Food 4 Less for your support!
