Join ABC10 for Raley's Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive

Join ABC10 for Raley's Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive

Hunger is a reality for one in six Americans. You may think you do not know anyone that is food insecure, but millions are suffering daily.

In California alone, nearly 60% of all public school students are eligible for free or reduced price school meals. That’s 3.5 million low-income kids statewide. The situation amplifies during the summer season when many children who rely on school programs for food go without meals because school is not in session.

Because Raley’s Food For Families program recognizes that no child should go hungry, they have become a main contributor to local food banks. A donation of $1 to Raley’s Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive will help provide fresh produce to hungry families.
