On the Trail

On the Trail to Fight Hunger!

David Driscoll

As the holidays approach, our team at K&L Wine Merchants is constantly exploring new opportunities to give back to the community that has now supported us for forty years. In that light, we have paired up with the tremendous team at Second Harvest Food Bank to host our first ever food and fund drive! If you're coming by the store to pick up some wine, we could use your canned goods!

Second Harvest is one of the largest food banks in the nation and has been serving the communities of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties since 1974. The support of organizations like K&L and individuals like you allow them to provide food for a stunning quarter million people every month. To participate in K&L's partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, click on the link below or bring in nutritious, non-perishable food stuffs as detailed below on your next trip to K&L Redwood City in November or December. Your support goes a long way in providing a meaningful meal to those in need throughout or community. We've got bins set up our Redwood City location to take your donations, so the next time you come in to shop for booze, bring a few cans with you!

The Food Bank accepts all non-perishable food donations, but especially needs these nutritious items: 

• Meals in a can (soup, stew, chili) 

• Tuna or canned chicken 

• Peanut butter 

• Canned foods with pop-top lids 

• Canned fruit in its own juice or water 

• Low-sodium canned vegetables 

• Olive or canola oil 

• Spices 

• Low-sugar whole grain cereals 

• Healthy snacks (granola bars, nuts, dried fruit) 

*Please avoid items packed in glass. No wine, candy or soda please. 

We're looking forward to helping our local community this holiday season. Here's to hoping you can help us make a difference! Donate online at our K&L donations page by clicking on the link below! $50 buys 100 meals! Our goal is 500 lbs of food and $5,000 in donations.
