Empty Bowls

River City Food Bank’s Empty Bowls event was a huge success! It was a pleasure to be back in-person once again and show you first-hand how your support changes lives.
Because of you, we raised more than $300,000 to help our neighbors facing hunger- WOW!
Despite the challenges of the past few years, our community has continued to show us compassion, dedication and generosity in a way we could have never imagined.
We are humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude.
A sincere THANK YOU to every guest, sponsor, donor, volunteer and community partner that made this event possible.
In case you missed it, or would like to see it again, please check out our video highlighting the harrowing journey of Alex, Anna and Keira. Your generous support ensures that families just like theirs feel welcome and have access to the healthy food they need to thrive.

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!
