Take The Toll Roads, feed a family

A time-saving alternative to surface streets and carpooling, The Toll Roads is teaming up with Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County to provide much needed items this holiday season.

The "Drive-Up Food Drive" begins today on the following Toll Roads: 241,261,133 and 73 (91 Express Lanes are not a part of this program). Non-perishable donations will be accepted in all cash-payment lanes, plus at the following toll plazas: Windy Ridge, Irvine Ranch, Orange Grove, Tomato Springs, and Catalina View.*

Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is a member of Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. This year, more than half a million people will go hungry in Orange County alone.
Just like voting, every person makes a difference. Do your part to help those less fortunate.

For your reference, below is a recommended list of items to donate.

  • Peanut butter & jelly
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned vegetables or beans
  • Canned pasta meals
  • Canned or instant soup
  • Cereal
  • Instant rice
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Bottled water

*The last day to drop off items before Thanksgiving is Monday, November 22.
