SMUD Giving Monday


Thank you for your donations and helping to continue the California State Fair tradition of community with the 2020 SMUD Giving Monday canned food drive at Cal Expo! We collected over one ton of canned food items that will serve over 300 families. Donations continue to be accepted at the Elk Grove Food Bank.

The need for food continues throughout the summer and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an increased need for food donations. Check our list of the most needed items below:

Requested Donation Items:

Items that are high in protein are needed most. Seniors are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition, so items like peanut butter are a favorite! Other items that are particularly helpful to those in need are:
