On April 25th, our Walnut Creek, CA office volunteered at the local Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano to help sort and distribute perishable and non-perishable items.
The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano focuses on feeding their neighbors today, and advocating for a hunger-free tomorrow. Their efforts help feed those who are in great need in their communities 7 days a week. What’s more, they rescue and prevent food waste from reaching a landfill. Each year, the nonprofit organization repurposes more than 4,500,000 lbs of food waste. The Food Bank’s great work enables them to serve an amazing 1 in 6 residents.
“It was rewarding to give back to the local community knowing that our efforts will make a difference,” says Regional Vice President at Berkley Environmental Boston Toby Leung. According to Feeding America, 51% of all food programs rely entirely on volunteers. Nonprofits lean on support from community members.
