Set a reminder now, SMUD Giving Mondays are back this season! The California State Fair and SMUD have partnered again to help The Elk Grove Food Bank with nonperishable donations. Fairgoers can donate nonperishable items for a free ticket into the Fair. According to the Fair’s website, here’s how it works:

  • Donate three or more non-expired, nonperishable items per person for example: peanut butter, canned meat (chicken or tuna) veggies, fruit, or soup.
  • Come to the CA State Fair any time between 11 am and 3 pm on July 15th and July 22nd
  • Get in free, courtesy of SMUD!
