It is just unconscionable that in an area with so much abundance and known as America’s “Salad Bowl,” that anyone is hungry. When I learned 1 in 5 local families is serviced by the Food Bank, I knew it was time for me to take action and help our neighbors.

At the Food Bank we are able to gather, store, ship and distribute $8.00 worth of food for every $1.00 we receive. I had previously been under the impression that “nonprofit” meant non-professional. The Food Bank is anything but non-professional.

I was first introduced to the Food Bank on a tour. The massive scale of the operation pointed out the tremendous need in our community. By visiting one of the many Family Markets, I viewed first hand the diverse population that the Food Bank serves.

It is heartening that the Food Bank is doing such a laudable job at its mission of eliminating hunger in Monterey County. I am proud to be a part of the Food Bank team and the effort to ensure that no one goes hungry.
