Occurrence: Annual event in June
Location: Bay Area neighborhoods
Description: Join a neighborhood team (or organize a team of your own) for this city-wide, two-part event. On the first weekend, teams canvas their neighborhoods, leaving flyers and grocery bags on doorsteps for families to fill with food donations. On the following weekend, teams retrieve these donations from participating homes while other teams set up collection bins at the entrances of participating grocery stores. At the end of the day, all donations are delivered to the Second Harvest Food Bank. Let's see if we can break our record of collecting 10,000 pounds of food donations!
