STARBUCKS FOOD DRIVE: APRIL 13 - 19
AT ALL BAKERSFIELD, TEJON RANCH AND GRAPEVINE LOCATIONS


 

The CAPK Food Bank is grateful to our friends at Starbucks, who will be holding a food drive all week from April 13 - 19, to benefit the thousands of families in need we serve throughout Kern County. 

If you happen to be stopping for a tasty Starbucks pick-me-up at breakfast or anytime during your day, be sure to bring non-expired, non-perishable food items with you and drop them off at the bins provided at all 24 of your favorite Starbucks locations in Bakersfield, Tejon or the Grapevine.   

Thank you, and tell your friends!
