BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — Providing food for your family may be simple for most, but for some areas in Kern County, access to grocery stores or fresh produce is limited, and especially with the pandemic, it can make it much harder for our older population to gain access to food.

That is why during the entire month of March, 23ABC is hosting our first ever 23ABC Gives, where we are partnering with the Community Action Partnership of Kern, also known as CAPK, to help donate food and canned goods to some of the most vulnerable in our community, our seniors.

23ABC and CAPK are asking for donations such as canned goods and non-perishable food items like rice, peanut butter, cereals, and more, to help the county's vulnerable population of 65 and up who are in need.

If you'd like to make a monetary donation, you can do so here.
