Curves Food Drive

Curves In Antioch collects a decent amount from our members (last year we collected 1380 lbs of food and $625 cash for Loaves & Fishes), but we could do more with the community’s help.

Curves In Antioch participates in the March food drive in 3 ways –

1) we collect both physical food and virtual food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano

a: Any one can bring non-perishable food to drop off at the club. The food bank can not accept donations that are past their expiration/sell-by date. We make the arrangements to get all of the donations to the food bank from the club.

b: Any one can contribute to the virtual drive by going to this link –
They don’t have to go to the store, they don’t have to stop by the club, they can do it all from the comfort of their home as they finish reading the paper. The added benefit is that the food bank purchases the food at their discounted rates, so the money goes further.

2) for those that like to keep their money really, really local, we also collect for Loaves & Fishes.
Loaves and Fishes gets food from the food bank, but they also need cash to fund their operations and to buy things that are not available from the food bank. Loaves and Fishes has kitchen facilities in Pittsburg. They bring hot meals from their to dining rooms in both Antioch and Oakley, as well as Pittsburg and Martinez. There is no charge for the meals and anyone that needs may attend.

To encourage people to donate, Curves In Antioch also waives our sign up fee for people joining in March if they give a generous donation (a FULL bag of groceries, $25-30 to Loaves & Fishes, etc).

Again – any help you can give us to get people aware and dropping food/cash off or making a virtual donation is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, the need is as great as ever.
