#CanChallenge

#MountainViewCan | #LosAltosCan

CSA has a unique canned food drive planned for the summer, a time of year when donations are historically low – a social media campaign designed to encourage everyone to bring at least one can of healthy food to their local food pantry. #CanChallenge is simple:  from July 22nd- August 2nd, bring a can of food (or several) to your local food pantry (CSA or another one near you) and post a photograph or video of yourself doing so on social media. Tag your post with #CanChallenge, #CSAcares, and #Can, e.g., #MountainViewCan. CSA is especially in need of pop-top meals for those without kitchen access, high protein items, low-sodium canned vegetables, and fruits in their own juices. If no “CAN” do, monetary donations to assist us in purchasing food are much appreciated, too.

New this year is a video contest! Submit a creative video inspiring people to donate canned food and win a CSA t-shirt! See official rules for details on how to participate.
