Advocacy gets to the root of hunger
The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano continues to lead the fight to end hunger in our community. Working efficiently and effectively to feed 182,000 people monthly is a vital part of our work. However, we realize that if we want to instill change, we must do even more. This is why we continue to expand our advocacy efforts and focus on the root causes of the problem.
Educating public officials on why hunger exists and advocating for the people we serve has become a critical part of our work. We collaborate with policy makers, community based organizations,
faith communities, and philanthropic organizations to help people understand that hunger does not have to exist in a country that produces enough food to feed its entire population.
We are proud Feeding America recently inducted us in to their 2017 Advocacy Hall of Fame for our work in advancing anti-hunger legislation. To see more that you have helped us achieve, look to the back page of this report.
