Food Drives

The economic news is being reflected in STEAC’s food closet. Requests for food have steadily increased. STEAC is purchasing additional food every month in order to make sure families in need have nutritious meals.

STEAC’s food closet provides low-income Davis residents with enough food for three meals a day for five days. In recent years, STEAC provided annually enough food for over 60,000 meals.

Every year different groups in the community hold food drives to help keep the food closet stocked. Thanks this year to The Postal Food Drive, held in May, which collected over 700 pounds more than last year! The Realtors will be holding their annual food drive in November. The Davis Unified School District held a food drive with each school collecting a specific need food item. Their efforts were outstanding and much appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Heartfelt thanks to Laurel Sousa for her hard work on the Second Annual “Kids Helping Kids” drive. All the schools in Davis Unified School district showed their community commitment by donating over 4,400 pieces of clothing and over 600 pounds of food. Thank you the all the Davis students and their parents!

The Postal Workers of Davis did it again! Thanks for a fabulous Food Drive, collecting over 6,500 pounds of food. This beat last year’s collection by more than 700 pounds. We are so grateful to the generosity of the food donors and the postal workers.
