Events

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada hosts and participates in many events for our cause. We welcome organizations seeking a charity partner for their event.

Throughout the year, the Food Bank hosts and participates in a variety of events. Whether they are food and fund drives, All Ages Volunteer Events, CANstruction or more, there are exciting ways to get the word out about those who are struggling in our area and how we can all make a difference!
