Supporting Community Members in Need
Folsom, CA – The Twin Lakes Food Bank, City of Folsom, and faith-based and nonprofit organizations are teaming up to provide food and essential items for community members in need.
Nineteen “Stop, Pop, and Go” drive-thru food drives are planned throughout Folsom from Wednesday, April 29 to Sunday, May 10.
Measures taken to slow the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in hardships for many individuals and families. The food bank has served twice the regular number of households and is experiencing a critical food shortage of nonperishable goods. Families, seniors, and those deeply affected by this emergency are in need of assistance.
The “Stop, Pop, and Go” food drive is a no-contact, maximum-impact way to support the community. Food donors should not get out of their vehicle when donating food, but simply:
- STOP: At the location with food already placed in the vehicle’s trunk
- POP: Pop-open the vehicle’s trunk so the volunteer can take the donated items
- GO: Once the items are removed, drivers proceed on their way
Top items needed:
- Canned tuna and chicken
- Canned ravioli and chili
- Tomato products
- Pasta sauce
- Cereal and oatmeal
- Peanut butter
- Canned fruit and vegetables
- Nutrition supplement drinks (Ensure)
Cash donations are also welcome by visiting www.twinlakesfoodbank.org or mailing a check to the Twin Lakes Food Bank at 327 Montrose Drive, Folsom CA, 95630.
