Learning from home means kids aren’t eating in the cafeteria and parents are left finding other ways to make meals happen. School districts and food banks across Sacramento have been providing curbside pickup during the pandemic for that reason, but the need for help may be greater than ever.
RADIO.COM's Sacramento stations are coming together with River City Food Bank and Jiffy Lube to help Feed Our Families and bring meals to those in need during these difficult times.
ONE IN FOUR kids in Sacramento is affected by Hunger -- these food-insecure students are more apt to have poor physical health, depression and psychological stress, which leads to higher dropout rates.
River City Food Bank serves anyone in need with dignity, compassion and respect. There are no zip code restrictions and no proof of income required. Since March, River City Food Bank has provided approximately 1,135,000 pounds of food which equates to roughly 945,833 meals for families facing hunger. This is an increase in service of 30% as a result of COVID-19. Many of their guests are families coming to the food bank for the very first time, and they anticipate the need growing as businesses and schools remain closed.
