Annual Food Drive

Each year, the Kiwanis Club of San Ramon Valley partners with NBC Bay Area News and Safeway stores in Alamo, Danville, and San Ramon for the annual food drive accepting food donations for the Food Bank of Contra Costa County. During the holiday season, bags of groceries priced at $10 are available at Safeway stores and food items are specifically designed for supply needs of area food banks. In 2016, with the assistance of local Key Clubs and Aktion Clubs, the effort led to nearly 1,000 bags being donated, along with a gift of $2,500 issued by the SRV Kiwanis Foundation.

We hope that all local residents take advantage of this special time of Thanksgiving to make a donation to our food bank. Our supplies are running low and we know that some residents are unsure of what we truly need. These pre‐packaged bags will help us secure the products our clients most desire.
— Larry Sly, Executive Director of Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties
We are proud to be partnering with our area food banks and these important volunteer organizations on this community‐wide collection effort. We hope customers will help us end hunger by making a small donation. Every bag, every can and every dollar does count!
— Karl Schroeder, President of Safeway’s Northern California Division
