The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is kicking off the Holiday Food Drive Season with two events. Businesses, organizations and individuals can sign up and receive their boxes or barrels to get started collecting non-perishable food items to help the hungry in our region.
One event will be held Tuesday, October 29 at 775 Gastropub in Reno, other second one Wednesday, October 30 at Sparks Great Basin Brewing Company. Both events will be held from 4 – 7 p.m. Participants can sign up to hold a food drive and receive everything you need to start a food drive.
775 Gastropub is located at the West side of Meadowood Mall at 5162 Meadowood Mall Circle in Reno, NV 89502. Their phone number is (775) 828-0775.
Sparks Great Basin Brewing Company is located at 846 Victorian Avenue in Sparks, NV 89431. Their phone number is (775) 355-7711.
The food bank feeds people all year long, but collects most of its food during November and December.
Interested parties may also sign up for a virtual food drive during these events. FBNN has launched a new virtual food drive page at https://donate.fbnn.org/vfd/
Businesses or organizations will receive a personalized URL for their food drive to track the amount of donations that they are able to raise. The Virtual Food Drive URL can be shared through email, social media and more.
Each dollar donated helps to deliver four meals to those who need them.
