Bins for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada were filled to overflowing last year. The 2020 Fall Food Drive runs Oct. 17-24.


Somersett’s annual Fall Food Drive benefitting the Food Bank of Northern Nevada runs from Saturday, Oct. 17, through Saturday, Oct. 31. According to the Food Bank, one in five children in Nevada is hungry. Let’s pitch in and fight that statistic by bringing donations of non-perishable food items to the Food Bank barrels conveniently located in the lobby of The Club at Town Center, just inside the main doors.  

Items most in need:

Canned meals: Stews, soups, spaghetti/ravioli (low-sodium preferred)

Protein: Peanut butter, tuna, salmon, chicken, dried or canned beans

Grains: Whole-grain cereal, oatmeal, brown rice, whole-grain pasta

Fruits: Canned (packed in 100% juice or light syrup), dried fruit, applesauce (no sugar added), 100% fruit juice boxes

Vegetables: Canned (no-salt added and/or low-sodium preferred)

Dairy: Shelf-stable milk

Kid-friendly snacks: Granola bars, popcorn, animal crackers, graham crackers

Baby products: Formula, infant cereal, baby food

Food items should be non-perishable and non-expired. Please DO NOT donate home-made food, food in glass containers, or any food that has been opened or is unlabeled. 

Thank you in advance for your help!
