Citywide Food Drive 2017

Citywide Food Drive

Community Service Day includes a citywide food drive benefiting the Twin Lakes Food Bank.  More than 400 volunteers will drop off empty grocery bags and a food needs wish list on every doorstep in Folsom. They will return the morning of Saturday, September 16 to pick up food donations left in view of the street. Last year, more than 115,000 pounds of food was collected.  The goal is to exceed that amount in order to provide food for local families in need of assistance from the Food Bank.

Folsom residents are encouraged to fill up their bag with nonperishable, unexpired foods and set it where it’s visible from the streetbefore 8 a.m. on Saturday, September 16for pickup.

Top items needed:
  • Cereal and oatmeal
  • Canned tuna and meat
  • Soup and chili
  • Pasta and rice
  • Canned ravioli
  • Fruit cocktail
  • Canned vegetables and beans
  • Nutrition supplement drinks (Ensure)
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Baby food

In addition, Bel Air Folsom is supporting the Community Service Day food drive with a “Stuff the Bus” event on Saturday, September 16 from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit Bel Air at 2760 E. Bidwell Street, purchase a bag of groceries, and help fill a City of Folsom Stage Line bus full of nonperishable, unexpired food.  The food will be delivered to Twin Lakes Food Bank that afternoon.
