KCRA 3 Kids Can Food Drive

starts Monday, October 16th – Friday, November 9th!

Kids Can is the largest student-powered food drive in Northern California. It plays a vital role in stocking the food bank’s shelves for many months. Last year the Elk Grove Food Bank received over 91,000 cans of food. Last year, our school collected over 1,800 cans! Our goal at Herburger is for each child to donate at least one can.

The primary and intermediate class that collects the most cans will earn a pizza party!
