The Elk Grove Food Bank is currently asking for donations. Organizers estimate the non-profit could run out of food in about 15 days. 

ABC10 reports that the Food Bank serves almost 1,400 seniors, and with the Coronavirus outbreak they're serving nearly 30 clients an hour. 

Although they are requesting emergency funding from the city of Elk Grove, the food bank is not turning down donations from citizens. 

They are currently asking for non perishable goods and fresh produce. All donations can be dropped off at 9820 Dino Dr. #140 in Elk Grove. 

Other ways you can help your community at this time are by donating blood and supporting local businesses.
