Hunger: A Growing Problem

People in almost every part of San Francisco and Marin, and from all walks of life, can find themselves unable to afford all the food they need. As APPA/PCAPPA/BayAPPA is welcomed by the San Francisco and Marin community for our 2017 Annual Meeting & Exhibition, let’s truly become part of the community.   Our service project this year will partner efforts with the San Francisco/Marin Food Bank through a monetary donation & food drive!  Shortly we will be announcing our APPA/PCAPPA/BayAPPA Team Fundraising page that will allow for direct donations. Then during the APPA/PCAPPA/BayAPPA 2017 meeting, we will have available a collection barrel for our local attendees tto make food donations to be picked up at the conclusion of the conference.  We will also be holding special raffles throughout the event to help with our donation goal of $5,000! Information about how those ‘pop up’ events will occur will be advertised in Guidebook.  If you are looking for additional ways to support this effort, please contact APPA staff at education@appa.org.
