Business Food Fund Challenge


Give Time. Give $$$. Donate now. And help stop hunger!

Central Valley Community Bank is proud to participate in its sixth Business Food Fund Challenge to benefit food banks from the San Joaquin Valley to the Greater Sacramento region. Along with its own donations to 14 food banks and volunteer effort, Central Valley Community Bank is actively challenging businesses of all sizes to "help stop hunger" by donating and providing volunteer support to local food banks who are experiencing unprecedented effects from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many challenges to food banks as communities continue to experience food insecurity at unprecedented levels. Supporting food banks is critical to ensure families, especially children, have steady access to healthy, nutritious food. The good news is – there are many ways for businesses and individuals to help fight hunger.

  • Donate Time – many food banks have lost upwards of 50% of volunteers and are in great need of support. Whether it’s sorting, packing, distributing food, or helping with clerical work, food banks can always use a helping hand.

  • Donate $$$ – as household food insecurity increases, food banks need resources. Did you know, just $1 can help provide up to 7 meals?
Please join CVCB by making a difference today and donate time or funds to the food banks noted below. For your convenience, donation and volunteer sign-up methods are noted.

Help us stop hunger, give time and $$$ now!
