California State Employees Food Drive results are in!
This year instead of sharing totals and awards at a wrap-up party, we created a Thank You video with California Department of Food and Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross and Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services CEO Blake Young, please enjoy!
We did not reach our goal of 800,000 pounds, however state employees gave $135,727 in financial donations and 100,788 pounds of food for a grand total of 610,632 pounds (food and financial donations combined). They also donated a record breaking 4,273 turkeys for the turkey drive and over $29,000 in Run to Feed the Hungry registrations.
This drive has been going on for over 25 years and the generosity of this group is amazing. We are thrilled with the outcome. Thanks to all donors, leaders and coordinators - your support and contributions enable us to provide food and resources for neighbors in need.
