On Wednesday, June 22, 2016, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano was honored as the Nonprofit of the Year within the 4th Assembly District at the State Capitol in Sacramento.
The Food Bank was recognized by Assemblymember Bill Dodd for being an exceptional nonprofit organization within his six-county district. The Food Bank’s Executive Director, Larry Sly, and Advocacy Manager, Carly Finkle, attended the inaugural California Nonprofits Day celebration along with other honored nonprofits from across the state.
The award recipients visited the Assembly Floor and were recognized at a luncheon. Presentations were conducted by former Senate President Pro Tempore [and Sacramento Mayor-Elect], Darrell Steinberg; Assemblymember, Rich Gordon; and Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits).
CalNonprofits is a statewide alliance of over 10,000 organizations, representing and promoting California’s growing nonprofit sector and working to bring the full power of nonprofits to strengthening communities.
The Food Bank is honored that we were selected by Assemblymember Dodd as the Nonprofit of the Year for our district.
