Food Donations

 

canned_food_donationsOur annual Spring into Action canned food drive is coming in March!  Place your donation in a separate bag next to your recycling cart by 6am on your normal service day during the 2nd week of March.  See below for year-round local food donation options.

40% of food is wasted in this country.  Californians throw out over 11 billion pounds of food waste every year, and Napa ranks 45th for food insecurity out of California’s 58 counties!  Fight this waste and lend a helping hand…donate.


The following organizations accept both prepared and canned food.  Please no outdated canned goods, open containers, homemade or perishable foods for drop-off locations.  You must call ahead to make arrangements for prepared and/or perishable food donations.
