CHICO, Calif. -  The Vietnam Veterans of America, and veterans throughout Chico, are rolling up their sleeves and pitching in to make sure Camp Fire survivors have enough to eat.

They reached out to members of their organization across the country, and thousands of pounds of dried food has been donated and delivered. U-Haul donated boxes and tape, and the veterans have been hard at work for two weeks packing these boxes of dried food.

They plan to give the boxes away Saturday, May 18, at Stephen Murray's Camp Fire event at the Sportsman's Warehouse in Chico.

4Patriots' donation consisted of 29,000 meals, 59 pallets and 62,000 pounds of dried foods. The food includes ready-to-eat snacks and dried food that is prepared with either cold or hot water.

A 1-month supply kit consists of breakfast, lunch and dinner for a family of four for 30 days.

There is also a "Dinner on the Roll" tri-tip meal raffle. 

For $10, each ticket purchaser can drive up to the Chico Veterans' Hall at 552 Rio Lindo Avenue, and someone will hand out the driver the dinner. That event is on Friday, May 17, from 4 - 7 p.m.
