On Monday, April 20th, KSBW will be putting out a call to our Central Coast community to help those who are struggling to put food on the table while staying safe at home.

The demand on our local food banks is greater than ever. You can help feed families in Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito counties with your donation.

You are invited to connect with KSBW Project Community: A Day of Help and Hope

Their day-long, virtual telethon, benefits Central Coast residents who are utilizing our region’s food banks to help stay fed and stay healthy.

How it works

  • On Monday, April 20th, visit KSBW.com or use the KSBW news app.
  • Look for Project Community: A Day of Help and Hope.
  • Click on which Central Coast food bank you want to help.
  • You will be taken to the respective food bank’s official donation page.
  • Make a donation directly to the food bank of your choice.

Your donations are safe, secure, and stay local. Any monetary contribution will directly support the Second Harvest food bank-Santa Cruz county, the Food Bank for Monterey county, or the Community Food Bank of San Benito county. It’s your choice.

Community FoodBank of San Benito is proud to stand alongside our sister food banks in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties in this fundraiser, and we appreciate the proactive efforts of KSBW and its staff in making the Day of Help & Hope happen. The funding it generates will, no doubt, be important to our ability to serve.

“Well this Monday, you can help the most vulnerable by being part of our Project Community: Day of Help & Hope. With so many laid-off or on furlough, our region’s food banks have seen an unprecedented demand. So all day Monday, we’ll hold a “virtual telethon.” With social distancing, we can’t gather volunteers at a phone bank. But we can ask you to go to KSBW.com or our News App.”  -Joseph W. Heston, President and General Manager, KSBW
