March 21, 23ABC and local businesses will hold the Annual "Stuff the Bus" food drive.
This food drive helps our hungry friends and neighbors in Kern County. Bring your non-perishable food donations to the corner of Ming Avenue and Wible Road in the Sears parking lot between 4:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
We'll be there collecting your cash and food donations for the Community Action Partnership of Kern Food Bank.
The money and food will go to the CAPK Food Bank. Hunger is a very real problem in Kern County. Many in our county do not know where they will get their next meal. CAPK Food Bank provides nutritious food through a county wide network of 37 commodity sites, 75 pantries, after school programs, and emergency disaster response.
Last year, the CAPK Food Bank distributes more than 8 million pounds of food throughout Kern County. Fifty-seven percent of those served by the Food Bank are children.
