On Tuesday, the Kern County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a program to deliver food to vulnerable members of the community through the Community Action Partnership of Kern (CAPK).

The cost for the program will be $2 million, which would come from the federal coronavirus relief fund.

23ABC and its parent company E.W. Scripps are also working with CAPK to help families with food insecurity.

We’ve pledged to donate $12,000 to help feed families this summer. We challenge you to donate! Every dollar you donate will provide 7 lbs of food.

You can learn more on our website or you can visit the CAPK website to donate.
