    The final count that came in for Saturday afternoon was 16,781 bags.

    NBC Bay Area partners with Safeway for a one-day effort to benefit Bay Area Food Banks, which is a collaboration of eight food banks serving over 600,000 local residents each month.

    We've been doing this for the last four years. 

    The “Every Bag Counts" food drive takes place at 156 Safeway stores throughout the Bay Area, making it easy for community members to participate and help feed their neighbors in need.

    “Our goal is to create awareness about hunger in the Bay Area and provide our viewers an easy way to help out,” said Rich Cerussi, NBC Bay Area President and General Manager.

    Here is how you can help - come out to any of the 156 designated Safeway stores between now and Christmas. Inside the store, you will find a specially produced grocery bag available for $10. The bags include pasta and sauce, canned vegetables and important protein items like peanut butter and canned tuna.

    Once collected, the bags will be delivered to food banks.

    “Safeway is proud to be partnering with our area food banks on this community - wide collection effort,” said Karl Schroeder, President of Safeway Northern California. “Assisting people who need a helping hand during the holidays and throughout the year is an important part of Safeway’s giving programs.”

    "We thank NBC Bay Area and Safeway for bringing attention to the severity of local hunger and for creating a simple way for anyone in our community to help a family in need,” said Kathy Jackson, Second Harvest Food Bank CEO.   

    It is a great way to help the community while meeting your favorite NBC Bay Area news anchors and reporters, as they will also be volunteering at various Safeway store locations around the bay.
