The Food Fight is a friendly competition between county employees focused on raising funds for the Food Bank. Starting in 2004, the counties vie for bragging rights and ownership of the Big Apple trophy for one year. Determined to win the trophy back from Solano County this year, Contra Costa County employees made an extra effort to raise funds. The winning county is based on a dollar amount raised per person. During the holidays, Contra Cost County raised $109,412.91 resulting in $11.96 per employee while Solano County came in at $30,812.84 or $11.70 per employee. This year, Contra Costa County hit the overall million dollar mark, bringing in over $1 million dollars since the first Holiday Food Fight. The Food Bank and its clients sincerely thank employees of both counties for their spirit and persistence in coming back year after year to help their neighbors in need!
