Move one mile anywhere, anytime between October 5-11 and the citrus industry will donate 1,000 pounds to California community food banks!
The process is simple:
For every mile logged, we’ll donate 1,000 pounds of citrus to California Association of Food Banks’ Farm to Family program, which services community food banks across the state. The first 500 people to register will receive a swag bag** mailed to them before Citrus Stride week.
*CLICK HERE and sign in with the email address and password you used to register. Locate Citrus Stride under “My Profile” and click ” Submit Virtual Results”.
** Swag will be prioritized for participating legislators, Capitol staffers, and agency representatives.
Anyone! Legislators, policy makers, agency representatives, and government staff are invited to participate virtually alongside citrus growers and their families.
Citrus Stride is an annual event hosted by California’s citrus growers in partnership with community food banks to raise awareness about food insecurity. For every mile logged, we pledge to donate 1,000 pounds to community food banks.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s Citrus Stride will be held virtually. Grab a mask and commit to moving one mile. Walk, run, bike, skateboard, swim, hike, you choose. Go one mile and help us reach our goal of donating 500,000 pounds of citrus to people who need it!
Monday, October 5 – Sunday, October 11, 2020
California is the world’s fifth largest economy and home to the most bountiful agricultural production in the world. Yet our communities are some of the hungriest. Before the pandemic, an estimated 1 in 8 Californians didn’t know where their next meal would come from, now nearly 1 in 4 Californians report being food insecure – that is about 10 million people.
Since now more than ever our communities are struggling with hunger, Citrus growers have partnered with Farm to Family to deliver millions of pounds of citrus to community food banks each year.
Help us spread the word about food insecurity by participating in the #VirtualCitrusStide. Together we can VIRTUALLY eliminate hunger! To learn more about food insecurity, go to http://www.cafoodbanks.org/.
We care about your safety. Please #WearAMask and practice social distancing to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
