A group of hard working and energetic Circus Reno personnel donated their time and energy to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Their efforts resulted in 14,000 pounds of food packed and ready for families in the area. The shared food will benefit a variety of agencies and mobile pantry distributions in the neighborhood.

“What a great show of volunteerism,” said the Food Bank Volunteer Coordinator. “I must say, the Circus Circus team was full of energy, fun and highly productive!”

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is a regional food distribution and support system for more than 130 different direct service, non-profit agencies who serve the needy, the ill, the elderly and children. Among clients who visit emergency food sites, 11% are over age 60. Children are the most vulnerable to hunger with 37% of emergency food recipients being children under the age of 18.
