SPARKS — The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is kicking off the holiday food drive season with two events next week.

These events will give businesses and individuals an opportunity to sign up for their seasonal food drives and receive the boxes or barrels needed to get started collecting non-perishable food items to help the hungry in our region.

Happy hour specials will be available to anyone who signs up for a food drive at the kick-off events on Tuesday at BJ’s Brewhouse, located at 425 Sparks Blvd. in Sparks, and Wednesday at 775 Gastropub, located at 5162 Meadowood Mall Drive in Reno. Both events will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Sign up to hold a food drive and receive everything you need to get started right away.

Throughout the month of October, when a 777 Gastropub customer orders any menu item and mentions the food bank, the restaurant will make a donation to the Food Bank Northern Nevada.

The logistics of the food drive season are costly and time consuming. These kick-off events offer the opportunity to save $100 per truck load of barrels and use the money to help feed more people.
