Feeding Young Bodies & Minds
In April, SESLOC Federal Credit Union will match your donation in support of the Food Bank's Lovin' Lunchbox program and thank you with a special gift. With each $1 you donate, the Food Bank can provide $10 worth of food to help feed the 16,000 food-insecure children in San Luis Obispo County.
Good nutrition is essential to a healthy mind and body. The healthy meal you provide leaves a legacy far beyond the immediate need you fulfilled. Donate to the Lovin' Lunchbox program at a SESLOC branch near you throughout the month of April.

Held on the ocean front lawn at the Cliffs Resort, Barrel to Barrel will include live music from Aloha Radio, over 40 visiting wineries and breweries, local cuisines and an incredible silent auction! Proceeds benefit the Food Bank's GleanSLO Program. http://www.winewavesandbeyond.com/
Chefs from around the county will each create a delicious course paired with local wine. This year's event will take place at the stunning Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. Proceeds to benefit the Food Bank's GleanSLO Program. http://www.winewavesandbeyond.com/
Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
On Saturday, May 9, 2015, the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive celebrates its 23rd year helping the hungry. The National Association of Letter Carriers’ Food Drive will once again spread out across San Luis Obispo County to help provide assistance to residents who are struggling with hunger.
This Food Drive effort is the nation's largest single-day drive. In 2014, 72.5 million pounds of food was collected, which brought the grand total of donations to more than 1.3 billion pounds of food collected since the drive began in 1992.
