10% of Proceeds from Book Sales to Benefit SF-Marin Food Bank!
Come celebrate the release of Todd Parr’s latest book, Love the World, and help feed your neighbors in need at the same time. Todd has decided to turn his launch party at Book Passage in Mill Valley into a fundraiser for his new friends at the SF-Marin Food Bank. With 1 in 5 people in need of food assistance in Marin County alone, it’s more important than ever that we all band together to make sure families, children, seniors and people with disabilities all have access to healthy, nutritious food. SF-Marin Food Bank will have food collection barrels at the event and someone on hand to collect additional donations and volunteer names.
Todd Parr is the award-winning author and illustrator of more than 40 children’s books. Empathy is at the core of Todd’s stories; they are about acceptance, differences, and promoting empowerment for kids in a simple, fun way. Through his books, Todd has partnered with Target, Reach Out and Read, People Magazine, and several other organizations to promote reading. He has created merchandise for Macy’s, developed his own children’s clothing line, and had work displayed in the windows of FAO Schwarz.
About SF-Marin Food Bank
The SF-Marin Food Bank’s mission is to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin, where one in four neighbors is at risk of hunger. We envision a community where everyone is able to obtain enough nutritious food in a dignified manner to support the health and well-being of themselves and their families. We address hunger head on: from our pantry network and home-delivered groceries, to our nutrition-education classes and food-stamp enrollment, we work in many ways to nourish and empower neighbors in need. We are on target to distribute more than 48 million pounds of food this year, 60% of which is fresh fruits and vegetables. Learn more at www.sfmfoodbank.org.
