Food Share’s 8th annual CAN-tree drive

On Dec. 13 and 14 Food Share’s 8th annual CAN-tree drive took place in Figueroa Plaza in Downtown. Groups donated cans and community groups built trees from the cans that were then donated to local food banks. Each CAN-tree required approximately 600-800 cans.

The very tall trees are 15’0” tall, 28 layers and contain 10,000 cans. 220,000 pounds of food are collected at the event to be shared.

Since 1978, Food Share has been feeding the hungry in Ventura County. Food Share provides food for over 75,000 monthly.
