End Hunger in Our Community
Support our local food banks now through May 31, 2022
Did you know that 1 in 6 people in SLO County and 1 in 4 in Santa Barbara County struggle with food insecurity?
Many of which are children and seniors. That’s where our local food banks come in — with the support of our communities and the Food Bank’s networks or wholesalers and partners, every $1 donated buys enough food to make 7 nutritious, wholesome meals.
Join us throughout May in support of the food banks of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties in an effort to ensure our neighbors don’t go hungry.
Your donations have a tremendous impact.
Just $1 buys enough food to make 7 meals,
thanks to the food banks’ networks of wholesalers and partners.
