Nevada City Lions take part in hunger project

Nevada City Lions Club will be participating in the “California Lions Project Care: Hunger,” a statewide Lions Clubs service project to be conducted during the month of February. The club will be collecting non-perishable food items for distribution to Interfaith Food Ministry, located at 440 Henderson Street in Grass Valley.

The purpose of the California Lions Project Care: Hunger is to engage all California Lions Clubs of all sizes in a statewide community service program that is of such vital importance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nevada City Lions Club will be collecting non-perishable food items from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 28 in front of the main entrance of SPD Market, Nevada City. All state and local COVID-19 health measures will be followed while the food collection is occurring.

“The goal of the California Lions Project Care: Hunger is to collect 150,000 pounds of non-perishable food items throughout the state and we look forward to the Nevada City Lions Club making a significant contribution to achieving this goal,” said Nevada City Lions President Jackie Wapp. “It is an opportunity for our local Lions Club members to engage in a meaningful project that will greatly benefit our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
