PantryToGo offers pantry staples and fresh produce, along with household items when available, to families who need them – no registration required. The addition of the Denio’s location brings PFB’s PantryToGo sites to 10, with this being the first in Roseville. Denio’s has graciously donated use of their land to PFB.
“We’re so grateful for the partnership with Placer Food Bank and proud to be able to open Denio’s up for this important community service,” said Eric Denio, Facilities Manager of Denio’s. “We love our city and we want to help make a positive impact however we can.”
The partnership between the two organizations is a meaningful one. Both have a long history in the City of Roseville, with Denio’s being part of the community for 75 years and PFB operating in Roseville for more than 50 years.
