Bridge of Giving Benefits Nevada County Food Bank

This is the 8th year for the Bridge of Giving event to benefit the Nevada County Food Bank.  Local resident Pamela Morey came up with the idea to collect food at the old highway 49 bridge over the South Yuba River to fill two needs.


This Sunday from 10 to 3 people are encouraged to bring non perishable food items to the old 49 bridge north of Nevada City.
More and more families and students doing their community service are getting involved.
