On November 14 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m,Su Casa will host its annual Drive By Food Drive. Bring nonperishable items to the intersection of 3rd and F Street in Salida.

Due to COVID-19, community members may also drop off food at Su Casa the week prior to the Food Drive. Those who wish to donate this way may call Su Casa ahead of time and an employee will come out to your vehicle for the least amount of contact.

All the food received will be donated to the Presbyterian Church Food Pantry. Nicole Balaun, owner of Su Casa said “It’s a huge event. We fill up the delivery van; it’s a lot of food.” Balaun went on to say that there is “great community participation.”
