Northern California’s River City Furniture Rental company has just announced the start of River City’s “Feed Our Community” campaign with The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County.

The “Feed Our Community” campaign is simple, every time a client rents furniture from River City, they will make a financial donation that will result in fifty (50) meals for families in the community.   

With the continued news reports of tent cities on the sides of roads, families in need and children going to bed hungry, River City has been looking to make a more formal partnership with a well-organized non-profit organization. After several weeks of discussion, the selection was easy and The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County was selected. “We just wanted to do more and are committed to support our community by helping feed families” said Liz Laird, President of River City Furniture Rental. “We have been so impressed with the Food Banks commitment, support and dedication. They are out there 365 days a year feeding over 178,000 people each month, they are making a difference.”

“We are thrilled that River City Furniture Rental approached us” said John Calender

Corporate Relations Manager from Food Bank. “The idea that when someone rents furniture from River City, 25 people are fed a meal. That just warms our hearts”. The Food Bank recently reported that 96 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to food programs, 1 in 4 people receiving emergency food are children and alarming 1 in 8 people within Contra Costa and Solano counties turn to the Food Bank for emergency and supplemental food. The Food Bank has developed programs that address the size of this need as well as nutritional needs of the people they serve.
