Mollie Stone's Kicks Off 'Cans For Fans' Food Drive

Each Facebook "like" leads to a can of food donated to Marin food banks.

A “Like” goes a long way, according to Mollie Stone’s Markets, who just kicked off their Second Annual “Cans For Fans” virtual Food Drive.

Mollie Stone’s Markets, which has a location in Greenbrae, will donate a can of food to Bay Area food banks on behalf of its followers. Each can donated will be matched with a can of organic soup from Amy’s Kitchen.

"We appreciate our friends at Mollie Stone's for organizing their annual Cans For Fans drive and hope our soup can help nourish local families in need,” said co-founder Rachel Berliner in a press release.

To make a free donation, anyone may "Like" Mollie Stone's Facebook Page and use the Cans For Fans application to designate their local food bank to receive two cans of food.

The virtual can drive ends on January 4, after which Mollie Stone's and Amy's will present the donation to the San Francisco & Marin Food Banks and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara & San Mateo Counties.

Last year, more than 290 cans of protein-packed food were donated to the food banks through the first Cans For Fans, said Mollie Stone’s co-owner David Bennett.

"There are many important causes to support during the holidays," said Bennett, "but if you have been to our stores you are familiar with our passion for feeding people wholesome food."

With one in four Bay Area residents affected by hunger, said Bennett, Mollie Stone's has furthered its commitment to the food banks by making donation barrels available at its nine stores.
