Today, many people right here in America are worried about where their next meal is coming from. According to data from UCLA’s Center for Health Policy Research, at least 4 million Californians are struggling with food insecurity — being unable to consistently put food on the table. More and more people are turning to food pantries to help them put enough food on their tables. And these are not just homeless people, but often people with jobs who simply do not make enough money to feed their families.
To help meet this need, Big Sunday is happy to host the End of the Month Club.
Every month, Big Sunday sponsors a food drive to collect food. We donate this to nonprofits, schools, afterschool programs, senior centers, vets’ centers and anyplace else where people are hungry. Any non-perishable, unexpired food can be dropped off at the Big Sunday offices anytime. And at the end of each month, the donated items are sorted and distributed at our 2W@10 program. 2W@10 is a special bimonthly program for volunteers with intellectual and developmental disabilities that offers them a safe space to give back to the community and meet new people. If you’re interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each month we collect and give away at least 800 items of food. In May we host our famous 10K in May collection, where we give away at least 10,000 cans, boxes or bags of food. (Last year it was more than 13K!) In November, we give away more than 30,000 items as part of our popular annual Thanksgiving Stuffing Event. And in December we give away thousands more items…’cause it’s December!
If you’d like to get more involved, please contact Beenish at email@example.com or call 323-549-9944.
FYI: One way people get involved is to host a collection at their school, house of worship, company, or with their club, team, fraternity, sorority, in their neighborhood or anything else you can name. If you’re interested, let us know!
