As some may know, the Food Bank Program of Community Action Napa Valley (CANV) is happy to announce they are moving to their new location in South Napa. This move will start mid-December since the Food Bank is normally closed at the end of the year. If CanDo were to continue with our normal food collection on December 9th, it would not give the Food Bank adequate time to distribute the food and would add significantly to the amount of food to be moved from the old place to the new location. Cancelling the December 9 pickup was a very difficult decision for the CANV management team to make, but one they feel is necessary.

The next pickup day will be February 10, 2024, at the new Food Bank warehouse location. More information coming soon!
If you’d still like to donate something to the Food Bank before the holidays, please visit their website (link above) to make an online donation, or mail a check payable to the CANV Food Bank to the following address: Napa Food Bank, 1766 Industrial Way, Napa 94558

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:

October 14 Pickup 16,124 lbs of food collected 13,437 meals provided
2023 total so far 72,403 lbs of food collected 60,336 meals provided
