Today Show spotlights good works at Sacramento Food Bank
August 23, 2013 | News

Last week, the Today Show aired a segment touting the efforts by Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services to incorporate fresh, local produce into its offerings for the underserved community in Sacramento.

The Sacramento Food Bank hands out 5 million pounds of food each month – half of which is fresh produce going directly into homes to feed more than 20,000 residents per month.

As part of the ONE Campaign, the Diocese of Sacramento is seeking to raise $1 million to help Sacramento Food Bank enhance its critical food programs. The funding also will help facilitate the renovation of its current headquarters, expanding food storage and distribution space.

Sacramento Food Bank President and CEO Blake Young has worked to forge partnerships with local growers after noting the correlation between the traditionally highly processed food bank offerings and the served community’s chronic ailments. And farms were more than willing to participate, offering up surplus and imperfect fresh fruits and vegetable to be given to those in need.

“We thought, if we’re going to operate a food program, why not hit a home run and focus on people’s health,” Young said.

The overwhelmingly positive portrayal of this program and its profound impact on Sacramento shows that when we come together as ONE, we give life and hope to our community.
