• Food Bank Fire: What Can We Do?

    The Monterey County Food Bank suffered a serious loss in an arson fire and is currently shut down. The warehouse is being cleaned, but the refrigerated trucks were destroyed. Estimated damage is at least $500,000.

    The Monterey County Food Bank provides food to nearly all of the county’s pantries for the homeless, the elderly and children. Thousands are going hungry due to this despicable act.

    People have asked what they can do, so we have provided a drop-off place in our office for non-perishable foodstuffs, as we often do during the holiday season. Please feel free to bring donations to our office at 306 Grand Ave., Pacific Grove. We will hold them until the Food Bank says they are ready to accept them.

    St. Mary’s By The Sea Episcopal and the Methodist Church on Sunset are also accepting donations in Pacific Grove.

    For cash donations please contact the Food Bank directly at (831) 758-1523 or go to their website at www.foodbankformontereycounty.org/

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
