Fire Hits River City Food Bank and Diocese of Northern California Offices

A four-alarm fire destroyed the River City Food Bank, at 1322 27th Street in downtown Sacramento and damaged offices of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, including Bishop Barry Beisner’s office at 1318 27th Street on October 21st.

The fire was centered on “The Annex,” where communications, youth and young adult ministry services, and the Episcopal Foundation of Northern California and other offices were housed. The River City Food Bank serves about 30,000 people locally and is closed while it looks for a new location. About 8,000 pounds of food was destroyed by the fire.

Cash donations can be made to the River City Food Bank to help rebuild their inventory and help them get back in business ASAP.
