Folsom “Stop, Pop, and Go” Food Drives to Support Community Members in Need

Nineteen Drive-Thru Food Drives Planned April 29 – May 10

The Twin Lakes Food Bank, City of Folsom, and faith-based and nonprofit organizations are teaming up to provide food and essential items for community members in need.
 
Nineteen “Stop, Pop, and Go” drive-thru food drives are planned throughout Folsom from Wednesday, April 29 to Sunday, May 10. 
 
Measures taken to slow the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in hardships for many individuals and families. The food bank has served twice the regular number of households and is experiencing a critical food shortage of nonperishable goods. Families, seniors, and those deeply affected by this emergency are in need of assistance.
 
The “Stop, Pop, and Go” food drive is a no-contact, maximum-impact way to support the community. Food donors should not get out of their vehicle when donating food, but simply:
 
  • STOP: At the location with food already placed in the vehicle’s trunk
  • POP: Pop-open the vehicle’s trunk so the volunteer can take the donated items
  • GO: Once the items are removed, proceed on their way with our gratitude
 
Top items needed:
  • Canned tuna and chicken
  • Soup
  • Canned ravioli and chili
  • Tomato products
  • Pasta sauce
  • Cereal and oatmeal
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta
  • Canned fruit and vegetables
  • Nutrition supplement drinks (Ensure)
 
Cash donations are also welcome by visiting www.twinlakesfoodbank.org or mailing a check to the Twin Lakes Food Bank at 327 Montrose Drive, Folsom CA, 95630.
