The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano celebrated a significant milestone in May with our first annual Nourish gala honoring our 40th anniversary. The evening was a true retrospective because Linda Locke, the founder of the organization, was able to attend. The evening also represented our future by bringing together those who make our continuing work possible. Our presenting sponsor, Chevron, shared the evening with us along with seventeen other companies that represent the corporate support we receive. Current and past Board Members were also in attendance, along with private donors who make our work possible. Roberta Gonzales from KPIX CBS 5 did a fabulous job hosting the event, reflecting the media support we receive. The evening was truly a celebration of the community effort that makes the Food Bank thrive.
The event also showcased the community support we need to continue growing our work with the debut of the Kris Lesher-Aring Giving Circle. The Lesher family was kind enough to allow us to honor Kris’s belief that there is no reason anyone should be hungry in a land as prosperous as ours. We hope donors will help us in our work by honoring Kris Lesher-Aring’s lifelong concern for people in need.
