CA Grown Promotion Helps Food Banks

California Grown partners have committed to donating a pound of food to California food banks for every #cagrown that is posted on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook between now and the end of October.  Participants must take a photograph of the CA Grown logo or anything grown or produced in California (this could be flowers, wine, apples, milk, beef, etc) and use #cagrown in your post.

“We love checking in and seeing all the photos with the #cagrown.  What’s most heart warming is seeing  kids post photographs, even though they are young, they can make a difference,” says Nick Matteis, Executive Director of California Grown.

  1. Great program! Will each pound of food as part of this noble effort somehow be in addition to pounds already donated? In other words result in a net increase over current food donation levels?

  2. Can we designate which food bank we’d like to support, or suggest a recipient in our area?
