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, our Summer Concert, 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!
Mark your calendars and save the date! The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is excited to bring back our most popular all-ages volunteer event for the third year. If you haven’t been, Baggin’ for Apples is a Halloween party meets volunteer event where families of all ages are invited to help us bag up apples for distribution to our clients. Come in costume and be prepared to have a blast volunteering, enjoy refreshments and there will also be activities for the kids. If you’ve ever wanted to share a volunteer opportunity with your younger children, this is a perfect one!
Are you planning to host a food drive this holiday season? Help us kick off the holiday food drive season and save Food Bank resources by stopping by our annual drive-by barrel pickup event. The average cost to deliver a truckload of barrels—with fuel and personnel costs—is approximately $100, which translates to 300 meals that we could provide with the same resources. Just drive up and we will load your barrels into your car for you. Light refreshments will be provided as well.
Let us know you’re coming: Please submit the Food Drive Request Form. This step is not mandatory prior to the kick off, but we will ask you to fill one out on an iPad when you get there if you haven’t done so already.
Choose an end date: When you fill out the form you will choose the end date for your food drive. We are happy to pick up your food for you. If you want to help us save additional resources, you can bring your barrels of food to the KTVN Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive on Friday, December 9th from 6am to 6pm at the GSR.
If you’re interested in inviting the Food Bank to be part of your event, please email our Events & Food Drives Coordinator, Lauren Greeney or call (775) 331-3663 ext 156.
It’s that time again to get your team together for the 2017 CANstruction coming up in March. CANstruction is a great event combining students, architects and companies to build giant structures out of canned food. The event is a perfect learning experience as well as great for team building.
