This year marks the 11th year that employees of Solano and Contra Costa counties will raise funds for their neighbors in need and compete for possession of the coveted Big Apple trophy! The annual Holiday Food Fight began in 2003 as a friendly competition to raise funds for the Food Bank. In the past eleven years county employees have creatively raised over $1 million dollars for the Food Bank! The county raising the most dollars per person wins bragging rights and possession of the coveted Big Apple trophy for one year.
Many county employees work directly with low-income clients and understand their need for help with food. Many county employees want to make their community a better place to live in and take an active role in improving their neighbors’ lives. You too can help by donating online at www.foodbankccs.org/countycup. Through the end of the year, scroll down past PayPal, click on the drop down menu and select “Friend of” Costa County or Solano County employee.
