One in six Americans struggles with hunger. This summer, public libraries across California will partner with local area food banks to collect food for those in need. The California Library Association is coordinating this effort to collect at least 10,000 pounds of food for hungry Californians.
El Dorado County libraries are holding their usual summer reading club this year and the statewide theme is “Reading is so Delicious!”
The “Acquire A Taste for Giving” Food Drive is inspired by this theme. Libraries have food donation bins at each branch; please be as generaous as you can with non-perishable foods.
Collections will be from June 1 through July 31.
