California farmers and ranchers have donated more than one billion pounds of food to the California Association of Food Banks’ Farm to Family Program. The California Association of Food Banks represents more than 40 food banks that have partnered with 6,000 charities to provide food to Californians in need.
December is Farm to Food Bank Month and California producers are encouraged to donate. Donated food can be picked up at a production facility or farm. California avocado growers who would like to schedule a donation, or make a pledge, can do so by contacting Steve Linkhart, Director of Farm to Family, at 866.321.4435 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information can be found on the California Association of Food Banks website.
