Help Us Feed Hungry Families

Financial Donations

Donate to North State Food BankEvery month the North State Food Bank serves an average of 45,000 hungry residents in the six-county region. We partner with great volunteers and food providers to make this happen, but your financial donations also make a huge impact. Our annual goal is $150,000 of community support. Together we can take care of our community and make sure nobody goes hungry.

“The Chico State Hungry Wildcat Food Pantry is proud to be a member of the North State Food Bank. The whole North State Food Bank staff is dedicated to our success and through their ongoing support we have successfully distributed food to thousands of our students who experience food insecurity.”

--Joe Picard, Chico State Basic Needs Project, Hungry Wildcat Food Pantry

Hold a Food Drive!

Partner with the North State Food Bank to hold a food drive at your business or event. We can help you with organization and promotion and it's a great way for a local business to get involved in the community and give back! Call us at 530-712-2600, Option 3 to discuss the possibilities.
