Volunteers are Love in Motion

Volunteers Gave the Food Bank Some Love

On Saturday, April 25, 2015, 40 volunteers cleaned 5 storage containers and sorted clothes at the Food Bank Clothes Closet location on Williamson Drive.  The place looks great thanks to the wonderful volunteers who gave more than 200 volunteer hours!!
So handy!

Super Sorters!
Many hands make work light.
More Super Sorters!

We know you have busy lives, so we REALLY appreciate you taking time to help us get organized!

Curiosity Films Teams up to Help the Elk Grove Food Bank

Curiosity Films Teams up to Help the Elk Grove Food Bank

Have you heard of Curiosity Films?  Curiosity Films is a student-inspired, teacher-directed studio for student filmmakers in grades 3-6 participating in the Foulks Ranch Film Academy.  Jim Bentley is the Director of Curiosity Films and a school teacher at Foulks Ranch Elementary School. 

Check out this video, created by the students, with Sam Fine and Joel Yu.  "Writing of script was completed by Sam on his own with some peer revision and final teacher approval. This was part of a project looking at food waste and hunger in our community. 

So what are you waiting for? Helping is easy and fun to do!"

Thank you students, for caring about the Elk Grove Food Bank and the community you live in.  

Maybe we all can help the students. Here are their two Wish Lists: Amazon Marketplace and B&H Supplies.  With these items they can make more and better videos!
