SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) ― Each day, thousands of Bay Area families are stretched beyond their financial limits.

Often they are forced to choose between buying groceries, paying the rent or buying medicine.

Many households that receive weekly groceries through the Food Bank include at least one working adult.

Hunger frequently strikes the most vulnerable people in our communities.

You can help fight hunger now. Join KPIX 5 and Whole Foods Market as we help feed hungry families this holiday season.

Stop by any Whole Foods Market and drop healthy non-perishable foods in the bin. Your donation is a lifeline.

This year, greater Bay Area Whole Foods Market locations will host the “Feed a Local Family” drive during the Food for Bay Area Families campaign.
