PLEASANTON, Calif. — . The cities of Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin, and a consortium of local food providers are hosting “Feed Tri-Valley” throughout the tri-cities this summer. Community members are asked to bring food and/or grocery-store gift cards to specific collection sites from Monday, July 10th through Sunday, July 23rd. This effort is to help our local residents struggling with poverty and food insecurity in the summer. For donors who prefer an alternative way of giving, grocery-store gift cards have been added as an option. Most collection sites will have barrels with Feed Tri-Valley banners on them, and certain sites will accept the grocery store cards. For a list of sites with barrels and receptacles for gift cards, along with food recommendations visit: http://www.ptownlife.org/feed-tri-valley/.
With a mission to address local hunger via education and donations, Feed Tri-Valley resulted in the collection of nearly 4,000 pounds of food last summer. If your business is interested in being a Tri-Valley barrel and/or gift-card site, please contact Nicole at 925-931-3432.
