the bay area refineries – food bank challenge

Join The Bay Area Refineries – Food Bank Challenge in its annual campaign led by five refineries, including Marathon, Valero, Phillips 66, and Martinez Refining Company. This friendly competition will help raise awareness and provide critically needed meals to food-insecure children, families and seniors in Contra Costa and Solano. 

The Bay Area Refineries campaign has provided over 1.3 million nutritious meals since 2002. The refinery/company to raise the most funds each year will receive a trophy and bragging rights – but the real winners are the neighbors in our community who will be able to provide meals for their families and themselves thanks to your support
