Last year, we ran out of food in the summer. When school is out, children who normally enjoy the lunch program at school are home and hungry. The food bank’s demand for food increases, and it’s also a busy time for families…so the supply is down. We’re hoping to be proactive this year and do a big push to collect as much food as we can to help get us through the summer.
Will you help? Sign up to volunteer.
Come by and visit us at Pow Wow Days this month to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of this annual Orangevale tradition. The Orangevale Food Bank will be driving the newly wrapped food delivery truck in the parade on May 18th, and we’ll have a booth at the fair Thursday through Sunday (May 16-19).

Many of you remember the story of Casey Kleeschulte and the donated 1968 Ford 250 truck that we raffled off in the summer of 2012. If you missed the story, check it out here. After much research and many amazing blessings from the community, we are proud to present the newly wrapped delivery truck that was purchased from the proceeds of this truck raffle. Thanks again to heroes like Casey and many others who set the example for all of us to live by.
We need help collecting groceries for hungry families in the community. We are serving over 600 people each month and fully rely on volunteers and donations to meet the needs. Here is an opportunity to help pass out flyers and collect food donations inside a local grocery store each month in 2013. Would you consider donating a couple hours of your time to help us out? This is a great way to serve as a family as kids are welcome, even encouraged, to be a part of these important food drives.
Last year was so much fun, everyone is requesting that we do it again! We’re holding our Second Annual Community Spaghetti Feed on April 13th. There will just be one seating with 200 seats. We will certainly sell out very quickly, so be sure to reserve your spot today by purchasing tickets using the form below.
