HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Today, many people right here in America are worried about where their next meal is coming from. According to data from UCLA’s Center for Health Policy Research, at least 4 million Californians are struggling with food insecurity — being unable to put food on the table every day. More and more people are turning to food pantries to help them get the food they need. And these are not just homeless people, but often people with jobs who simply do not make enough money to feed their families. To help meet this need, Big Sunday is proud to host the End of the Month Club. You can be part of the solution by joining the Club!

DESCRIPTION

Every month, Big Sunday sponsors a food drive to meet the huge demand from local nonprofits and food pantries. The items collected vary each month and food donations can be dropped off at the Big Sunday offices anytime. In addition, once a month, we host an open house to sort and count all the food from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. Come on down!


ITEMS NEEDED

Just a donation (or two or 15!) of the featured item of the month (and transportation for the drop-off)


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

To help with the monthly sort, volunteers must be 15 years of age unless accompanied by a parent.
