Donations will benefit the Senior Service Center of the Temecula Rancho area. Established in 1978 by Buell Pettit, the food bank is the longest running program of its kind in Riverside County, providing food and a variety of services to seniors and families of low to moderate income levels.
The collection runs through November.
The service includes provisions of a near-daily bread distribution to over 1200 senior citizens and families in Murrieta, Temecula, Wildomar, Anza and Aguanga.
“Teaming up with the Murrieta Chick-Fil-A as a recipient of their month-long food drive is the shot in the arm we need right now,” said food bank president Rose Vaccarino. “Our donations aren’t coming in like they have in the past, yet the demand is increasing daily.”
The center anticipates more than 800 food baskets to be given out between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to a released statement.
Additionally, donations are accepted from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., Mon-Fri. at 41538 Eastman Drive #C, Murrieta,
In addition to participating with Chick-Fil-A, the food bank encourages schools, churches, businesses and other restaurants to team up with them this holiday season to provide for those in need.
Drivers are available who will make pick-ups if scheduled. For those in need, please visit the same location.
