Empty Bowls

River City Food Bank (RCFB) is thrilled to announce that we will host our 19th annual Empty Bowls event in person this year. As our only major fundraiser, Empty Bowls provides critical operating support to purchase and distribute healthy food to anyone in need in Sacramento County.

Reflecting on the past year, we are reminded that with every challenge comes opportunity. As the number of people experiencing food insecurity grows, RCFB welcomes out neighbors, offers a choice of healthy food and delivers hope without judgment and barriers.

This could not happen without your incredible support. Because of you, RCFB continues to strengthen health equity in our community, provide culturally meaningful food and offer CalFresh assistance to our neighbors facing hunger with dignity, compassion and respect.

Big Day of Giving

Every year, the Sacramento region comes together for one BIG Day of Giving – a 24-hour online giving challenge.

In 2021, our region raised over $13 million, with River City Food Bank finishing the day by reaching our goal of $75,000! This would not be possible without your kindness and generosity.

We hope you join us on May 5, 2022 for another amazing day of unleashing generosity in the Sacramento region.

Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Because of YOU, we raised more than $18,000 in gifts during Giving Tuesday 2021. We are so grateful for your support!
