Your Chance to Make Some Smiles: Only 1 Week Away

Produce volunteers, Ernesto and Maureen aren’t just smiling because they get to serve food to their neighbors in need; they can’t wait for you to join the cause to raise funds during this year’s Big Day of Giving that will enable the food bank to accomplish some important goals for the benefit of our 3000+ food insecure guests. To find out what those objectives are and how you can help us reach our $70,000 goal, visit our page where you can donate until midnight on May 2.

Big Day of Giving Fundraiser Giving Opens April 18

Big Day of Giving, the Sacramento region fundraiser for non-profits on Thursday May 2, comes at a crucial time at the food bank. Although reports indicate that inflation has flattened, individuals and families living at the poverty level are experiencing no relief at the grocery store, where skyrocketing food prices remain high. This is bringing more guests and longer lines to the food bank. The increased need for food is causing the food bank to expand its food sourcing for items such as milk, cheese, butter and sliced bread and sufficiently manage the long lines of guests that are waiting up to an hour for food outside the food bank, often in inclement weather. The goal to raise $70,000 will enable the food bank to purchase more core food items to meet the increased need from our food insecure neighbors and will fund the project to build an extended awning to provide protection to our guests while they wait in line. The remaining funds will be allocated to replace an inoperable forklift, necessary to transport and store our food donations. Donations will be accepted from April 18 – May 2 at 11:59PM.

Bet on Rotary Game Night & Fundraiser this Friday: Raise fund for the food bank

We are grateful that Rotary Club of Historic Folsom and Rotary Club of Folsom Lake chose Twin Lakes Food Bank as one of three recipients of the funds raised from this event on April 19. There is still room at the gaming table for you, if you haven’t yet purchased your tickets. This is a fun way to spend your Friday night and support your local food bank at the same time. Hope to see you there!
