Annual Can-Tree Food Drive Event returns to Ventura

CAN-tree is Food Share’s biggest food and fund drive of the year.

Food Share, Ventura County’s largest hunger-relief organization, is bringing its most popular community event back for the holidays! The 10th Annual CAN-tree food drive will take place in Figueroa Plaza, and in locations along Main Street, Ventura, from Thursday, December 9 through Sunday, December 12, 2021.

The event, which brings individuals, families, and local businesses together to collect and build hundreds of canned food “trees” is Food Share’s biggest food and fund drive of the year and is a critical source of food for the thousands of people still struggling with food insecurity in Ventura County.

There are lots of ways to get involved. Participants can Collect & Build, Buy & Build, Sponsor a Tree or, new this year, Sponsor a Hero. Additionally, the high-profile event, which draws thousands of visitors, offers a range of other sponsorship opportunities. There’s also a chance to win one of 13 coveted awards including the CAN Crusher, the People’s Choice, and the Mayor’s Choice, all of which will be featured on Food Share’s website, social media pages and newsletter.
