“Sacramento is ‘America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital,’ yet we have vulnerable and underserved populations – such as students, seniors and homeless – in our own community who are food insecure,” said Stacey Kauffman, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Sacramento. “By leveraging our scale and lending our resources to support the River City Food Bank’s efforts, we can raise both awareness and funds to combat this issue and support our neighbors in need.”
“River City Food Bank works to alleviate hunger by providing health and hope to thousands of men, women and children each week,” said Amanda McCarthy, Executive Director, River City Food Bank. “As families struggle to make ends meet and provide healthy meals to children now home from school full-time, food insecurity is escalating. Through a partnership with Entercom, RCFB will continue to be here for families and for all of our neighbors when they need us most.”
