BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — KGET’s annual Holiday Food Drive benefiting the Community Action Partnership of Kern is set for Wednesday, Nov. 15.

During the food drive, community members can drop off non-perishable food items to help our neighbors have a better holiday season. Although any non-perishable item donated helps, organizers say there are a few items that tend to run out quicker during the holidays.

These items tend to run short:

  • Canned pumpkin
  • Canned sweet potatoes
  • Canned cranberry sauce
  • Cake mix
  • Green beans
  • Canned corn
  • Stuffing mix
  • Canned gravy
  • Canned peaches

Organizers also said the truck collecting items on Nov. 15 is refrigerated so some perishable or cold items would be accepted.

The food drive will be held outside the KGET Studio at Compassion Corner on 22nd and L streets.

If you are unable to attend the event, you can text FEEDKERN to 50155 or make a donation by visiting the CAPK Foundation website.
