River City Food Bank

Since COVID-19 began, the River City Food Bank has seen a 32% increase in the number of people they are serving, the equivalent of 4,500 people per week.  Westminster immediately respond to this need and has been sending additional monetary donations each month.

 

This is usually the time of year that Westminster does a food drive, but with safety a top priority, RCFB has made the difficult decision to suspend physical food drives. Instead this year we ask you to support the food bankvia one of the options below:

  1.  

    Giving to RCFB’s Virtual Food Drive– click on this link to donate securely online. (In Address Line 2 please enter “Westminster Presbyterian”*)
  2. Purchasing items on RCFB’s Amazon Wishlist – check the box to ship to “River City Food Gift Registry Address” and on the gift card area please include “from your Friends at Westminster Presbyterian”*
  3. Donate single use masks, gloves, disinfectant and hand sanitizer for food bank staff and volunteers. You can either (1) ship directly to the Food Bank (1800 28th St, Sacramento, CA 95816), or (2) drop them off at Westminster during office hours, (3) or email ddjones@winfirst.com to arrange contactless pick up or to find a closer drop off option
  4. Volunteer at the Food Bank – select a shift to work here https://rivercityfoodbank.org/get-involved/volunteer-your-time/

 

The attached flyer shows how far River City can stretch the money donated. 

 

*While we cannot physically gather in community for a food drive, we can still show Westminster’s spirit and love. Including a reference to Westminster in your virtual giving sends a strong reminder of our ongoing commitment.
