300 tons of food – 2018 State Employees Food Drive helps families in need

CDFA, the California Association of Food Banks, and Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services teamed-up again in 2018 to sponsor the State Employee Food Drive. The generosity of state employees throughout California, including donations at office bins as well as cash donations, resulted in 609,527 pounds of food–more than 300 tons–available for distribution through food banks. This total includes 4,273 turkeys donated by state employees for holiday meals.
