CanDo's Give!Guide

This Holiday season we are thrilled to join 54 local Napa County non-profit organizations in the Napa Valley CanDo Give!Guide. A fundraising campaign that brings us all together to make it easy for new and long-time donors to make end-of-year contributions towards the important work we do supporting the our community.

On the Road against Food Insecurity

Thank you all who have donated time and resources as we help those in need of the multiple emergencies we have faced recently.

It has allowed us to provide the ongoing transport of increased volumes of food in our community, so it can go where the real need is!

The monetary donations help cover the variable costs (fuel, supplies, etc.) of transporting the fresh, perishable food safely and successfully to their final destinations- the agencies that serve those in need throughout Napa County.

Thanks to everyone for making our community safer & healthier!

Volunteers Needed or Volunteer and make a difference!

We need your help! Feeding It Forward will be recovering excess food from BottleRock, and distributing it to community organizations throughout the valley that serves those most in need.

In 2021 we recovered over 12,000 pounds of food from this event, helping to alleviate hunger and reduce waste and greenhouse gases that would have resulted.

This year we will be collecting food on Monday, May 30, and distributing food on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, at the event location following BottleRock.

It takes many hands to accomplish this, so we hope you will join us as a volunteer for this opportunity!

Please review the opportunities and select any you would be interested in and available to fulfill.

I appreciate your consideration, and we hope to have you join us in our fight against food waste and food insecurity

 

Honored to be awarded the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) 2021 Regional Food Recovery Challenge!
Thanks to everyone who made this possible.
