A simple system that really works

CanDo’s Napa Food Project is an innovative way to fight hunger in our communities. It involves the power of CanDo volunteers, one green bag at a time. Through this project, CanDo has greatly increased the amount of non-perishable food donated to the CANV Food Bank annually.

Our green bag project builds community by sharing food

✓ More Neighborhood Coordinators (NCs) = More Food Donors
✓ More Food Donors = More Green Bags
✓ More Green Bags = More Food For the Hungry

Those green bags add up!

Latest numbers:

June 8 Pickup: Napa 11,552 lbs of food collected 9,627 meals provided
June 8 Pickup: St Helena 208 lbs of food collected 173 meals provided
2024 total so far 40,712 lbs of food collected 33,927 meals provided
