Food 4 Less Helps SLO County Food Bank End Hunger
Contribute to the Have A Heart campaign during the month of April
Food 4 Less grocery stores in San Luis Obispo County and the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County will be collaborating again for the 9th annual “Have A Heart” campaign.
The Food Bank has made it their mission to work with a network of community partners to alleviate hunger in San Luis Obispo County and build a healthier community. To join them in this effort, stop by a local Food 4 Less store and purchase a heart at the check stand. This pink paper heart will symbolize a commitment to help end hunger in your community.
Donations will be collected throughout the entire month of April. With the community’s support, they hope to reach a goal of raising $20,000.
For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide $10 worth of food. Every little bit counts and no act of kindness is too small.
With 46,000 people in San Luis Obispo County needing food assistance, your heartfelt contributions will help the Food Bank get one step closer to achieving their mission. A big thank you to Food 4 Less and community supporters for making “Have A Heart” successful year after year.
