Join ABC10 for Raley's Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive

Join ABC10 for Raley's Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive

Hunger is a reality for one in six Americans. You may think you do not know anyone that is food insecure, but millions are suffering daily.

In California alone, nearly 60% of all public school students are eligible for free or reduced price school meals. That’s 3.5 million low-income kids statewide. The situation amplifies during the summer season when many children who rely on school programs for food go without meals because school is not in session.

Because Raley’s Food For Families program recognizes that no child should go hungry, they have become a main contributor to local food banks. A donation of $1 to Raley’s Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive will help provide fresh produce to hungry families.

Memorial Day weekend musical adventure in Napa

Sometimes the stars align and everything just goes your way. I also write for the ModestoView and know that they cover BOTTLEROCK every year so I asked the Editor Chris Murphy, if he had a chance could he check out a Vespa for me up in Napa. He thought I was going and asked if I wanted to ride up with them. I explained I was not. He asked if I wanted to go? There was an extra media pass and room and board already taking care of.  The Gallo Center for the Arts was dark for Memorial Day weekend, I had no other plans so, Yes Please. Left early on Friday morning and the drive was pretty easy going until we got to Napa. We pull up to the street on the backside of the Fairgrounds and tell the CHP that we are staying on 4th. Half a block from the entrance. Load in and I am informed that I will be staying in the Hunter S. Thompson room.
