At the Table Fall: Adapting for our community

The Food Bank’s ability to meet and adapt to the needs of our community has been put to the test. A pandemic, wildfires, record inflation and more have forced thousands upon thousands more people to turn to the Food Bank.

Drive-thru distributions to safely provide food, partnerships with school districts to offer food to families and ready-to-eat meal boxes for our neighbors affected by wildfires are just a few of the ways your support has helped us adapt to meet our community’s needs.

In the most recent edition of At the Table, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano’s bi-annual newsletter, you can learn more about how the Food Bank is continuing to adapt to the current needs of our neighbors and supporting a healthier future.

Read on to learn about:

  • Yelani’s story of hope and hard choices
  • 10 years of building better health with the Community Produce Program
  • How our long-time driver keeps on truckin’ with passion and energy
  • A ready-for-fall tomato soup recipe from InspiredTaste.net 

Gifts of time and money from incredible supporters like you make it possible for the Food Bank to evaluate, adapt and react to the needs of our community. Serving more people in more ways means every dollar and hour are more vital than ever. Thank you for adapting with us!
