SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Update:
Because of your efforts, we raised $403,364 for our communities. That's over 2,016,820 million meals for families during the holiday season! From the bottom of our hears we thank you for your hard work and dedication to help bring meals to these families in need.
Although Stand Against Hunger is over for 2021, you can still donate to the below food banks below.
Hundreds of thousands of families, children, single parents, seniors and other members of your community will wake up tomorrow not knowing where their next meal will come from. This includes not knowing if they'll have food for the holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Make a direct impact on your community and help give these people the meals they deserve. Join ABC10 and Wells Fargo in the 2021 Stand Against Hunger. Every dollar you give makes sure no one goes without a meal this holiday season and into the new year.
