In 1975 a group of people recognized families in our community had a critical need for help with food while items like day-old bread from the grocery stores would often go to waste. Although the problem seemed overwhelming, they believed if the community worked together it could be solved. This group started what is now the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.
Over the years, the Food Bank has gone from providing emergency food to a small number of people - to serving as a resource that one in eight of our neighbors rely on.
You are an important part of our work. We thank you for joining us to honor 40 years of nourishing our community.
