Bakersfield, Calif. -
The Kern County Fair has partnered with the Community Action Partnership of Kern Food Bank to bring awareness to the issue of food insecurity throughout the county, with its Feed the Need Canned Food Drive.
“The CAPK Food Bank is very excited to be working with Michael Olcott, CEO of the Kern County Fair and its Board of Directors, who recognized the need in our community and approached us to help," said Mark Corum, Outreach and Resource Development Manager of CAPK.
“They’ve provided an opportunity to treat the family to a great entertainment value, while engaging the community to do its part to help reduce food insecurity throughout Kern County.”
Free admission to the fair only requires each family member to donate three non-perishable, canned food items on Wednesday, Sept. 26 between 3-9 pm.
