In December, MOW Diablo Region, community partners, board members, volunteers, and staff will once again rally together to make sure that seniors who need nourishing meals will receive them during the holiday closure of our Bay Point and Pittsburg Cafès. This food drive is a vital effort that provides grocery bags and breakfast bowls full of healthy groceries, including fruits and vegetables and much needed household items to our most vulnerable guests who may not have anyone to take them to the store or who rely on the Cafès for their only meal of the day.

Last year’s drive meant 108 seniors didn’t go without food during the closures. Seniors were invited to fill their shopping bags with the donated food items during a designated “shopping” day at Bay Point C.C. Cafè. 53 additional seniors at the Pittsburg Café were also provided a bag of healthy groceries. The event was a true celebration of community members coming together to support those in need and was lifesaving for some very grateful seniors.

If you would like to donate goods, money or time to this important effort please contact Bonnie Paulson at [email protected] or 925.357.9706.
