Over the summer months more than 200,000 low-income children stop receiving free meals at school, and their parents are forced to turn to the Food Bank for help.
Sycuan, Vons and FOX5 are helping the Food Bank fight summer hunger with the “School’s Out, Hunger’s Not” Summer Food Drive which will run from July 1 to July 28 at all 56 San Diego County Vons supermarket locations.
And Vons is making it easier to give by providing $5 pre-filled bags of groceries at every one of their San Diego County locations. Customers can purchase pre-filled bags for $5 which includes the Food Bank’s most needed food items: canned meats, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, and cereal.
After purchasing the $5 pre-filled food bags, customers can place the bags in the Food Bank’s famous red food drive barrels at the front of the store.
Help the Food Bank feed children in need this summer. Support the “School’s Out, Hunger’s Not” Summer Food Drive at your local Vons supermarket this month.
