WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Raley’s Family of Fine Stores was proud to sponsor the 2nd Annual Farm-to-Fork Festival this past Saturday, Sept. 27 on Capitol Mall in Sacramento. The Raley’s booth featured a farmer’s market with a dozen local growers who donated proceeds from produce sales to the Food For Families program.
In addition to produce sales, donations from festival attendees, via Facebook, online at Foodforfamilies.org and through a mobile text-to-give campaign totaled $6,573 to help feed families in our community. Over 600 pounds of unsold produce were also donated to The Sacramento Food Bank.
