The Elk Grove Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) presented Raley’s Food for Families with a check for $2,000. Raley’s will then donate $4,000 in food to Elk Grove Food Bank Services. Raley's Food For Families holiday bag program doubles charitable giving by offering a $10 bag of wholesome, nonperishable and fresh food valued at more than $20 to benefit local food banks now through December 31.

The Elk Grove Volunteers in Policy Service provides enhanced services to the community of Elk Grove by providing specific delegated tasks and duties that help create efficiencies for the police department. The services are provided by trained volunteers who donate their time throughout the week to programs such as fingerprinting and vacation home checks.

Annual donations, in addition to the Elk Grove Food Bank, are made to entities such as The Community Scholarship Foundation, Project Ride, Safety Town, Santa for Seniors, Special Olympics, Elk Grove Adult Community Training and the Shoe Drive.

Established in 1974, the Elk Grove Food Bank Services is a critical component to the welfare of the Elk Grove community, providing food, clothing and resources to our neighbors in need. The Food Bank receives funding from churches, individual donors, foundations, businesses, grants, local and federal governments and serves about 3,000 clients with 36,000 encounters annually.
