Summer Kids Bag Program
The Fort Bragg Food Bank’s summer kids bag program runs through the summer on Tuesdays from noon to 3 p.m. The Food Bank will give families with children an extra bag of food every week. Pull up to the curbside. Put on your mask and open your trunk. Wait for their volunteers to load your food. And drive away with extra food. Partners in this program are the Mendocino Coast Children’s Fund, James G. Cummings Foundation and the Fort Bragg Unified School District.
For more information on the Summer Kids Bag Program, call the Fort Bragg Food Bank at 707-9649404, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website at fortbraggfoodbank.org.
