Bring a Can of Food to the Fair Sunday and Save

Bring a can of food (or two or three) to the Fair on Sunday, August 14, and the Fair will give you a coupon for $1 off general admission to the Fair on that day.  The Food Bank will have food collection bins available at the Fairgrounds from 10 am – 5 pm. Robin Houck, Deputy Manager of the fair says donations will be collected at 3 gates to the fair.

“Gates one three and five, you’ll see the food bank out front and what they will do is take a can of food and they will give you a ticket for a dollar off for any adult or senior admission for that day and that’s from 10 AM to 5 PM.”

All food collected on that day will be given to The Food Bank of Nevada County, which distributes food to those in need in our county.  At last year’s canned food drive, 1,600 pounds of food were collected – enough to feed 750 – 800 families.
