Hunger affects more than 700 households in the Tri-Valley. In a single month, local food providers will supply 25,000 meals for food-insecure families and individuals. This summer, take part in the movement to end local hunger by supporting Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore food providers and pantries during the annual Feed Tri-Valley food drive.

All are invited to donate food and grocery store gift cards at designated drop-off locations in the Tri-Valley between July 7 and July 21. Gift cards are encouraged.

Drop-off locations include: Pleasanton Public Library (400 Old Bernal), Towne Center Books (555 Main Street, Pleasanton), Pleasanton Senior Center (5353 Sunol Blvd.), Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce (777 Peters Ave.), Dublin Senior Center (7600 Amador Valley Blvd.), Dublin Civic Center (100 Civic Plaza), Livermore City Hall (1052 S. Livermore Ave.), and Livermore Civic Center Library (1188 S. Livermore Ave.)

All donations will be distributed to food-insecure residents of Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore through neighborhood organizations like Open Heart Kitchen, Interfaith Sharing, Valley Bible Church, and Tri-Valley Haven.
