For over forty years, the River City Food Bank has been one of Sacramento’s most respected agencies serving the poor in the Sacramento area. Many people may not be aware, that RCFB is partnered with C.A.R.E.S. (Center for AIDS research, education, and services) to provide groceries to AIDS patients who have trouble making ends meet. RCFB is a beneficiary of NorCal AIDS Cycle.
This year, I am pleased to strengthen the ties between the RCFB and NorCal AIDS Cycle, with the founding of a NCAC fund-raising team, Team River City Roadies! Our team is growing with eight members, and we’re still recruiting new riders. River City Roadies has already taken a leadership role in NorCal AIDS Cycle, by sponsoring fund-raising workshop for NCAC riders, and sponsoring training rides to get people ready for the over three-hundred mile ride coming in early May.
There are two great ways to support River City Food Bank. The first is the food bank’s annual “Empty Bowls” event. Empty bowls is dinner and luncheon event which the biggest fund-raiser of the year for the food bank. More information about “Empty Bowls” and to purchase tickets can obtained at their website: https://rcfb.webconnex.com/emptybowls
The second way to show your support, is by making a donation to NorCal AIDS Cycle. NCAC has made a goal of raising a half-million dollars to support local agencies serving those in the Sacramento area with HIV/AIDS, including the River City Food Bank.
Thank you as always, for your generous support! It’s time for me to get out on the bike… 330 miles is a long way to ride, and I have some training to do!
