When: Saturday, November 19, 2022 at noon
Where: Eureka Boardwalk parking lot, at the foot of D Street
On Saturday, November 19th the Redwood Unit of the Backcountry Horsemen of California (BCHC) in partnership with Food for People, the Food Bank for Humboldt County, will kick off this year's Holiday Spirit Food & Fund Drive in true cowboy fashion. Come rain or shine, the Redwood Unit will deliver non-perishable food donations via pack train to Food for People.
The Cowboy Canned Food Convoy will begin at noon at the Eureka Boardwalk parking lot, at the foot of D Street, and will then parade through Old Town before returning where Food for People will collect the Convoy’s food.
Food for People coordinates the Holiday Spirit Food & Fund Drive on behalf of its network of 18 food pantries countywide; all the food that is collected within a community stays in that community to help feed local residents in need. Click here to find food collection barrels near you.
