To kick off the 2016 Farm-to-Fork Celebration, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and Visit Sacramento host a fresh food drive. Sacramento Valley farmers and produce companies will deliver produce to the food bank campus at 1951 Bell Ave., Sacramento, starting at 6 a.m. Wednesday. Items such as fresh pears, mushrooms, squash and potatoes will be officially weighed at the warehouse, then distributed over the next few days. A representative from Guinness World Records is scheduled to be on site to weigh donated produce. Last year, a record 170,923 pounds of food was collected in a 24-hour period.
