Recipe for Success



Greetings from the Food Bank and from our incredible team. We could not gather, sort and distribute 5.5 million pounds of food annually without our hard working staff and incredible agency partners like you! Helping feed our 44,000 hungry neighbors in SLO County would be impossible with out the collaborative efforts of all. We want to thank you for what you do and spotlight your efforts. Please send us stories about your agencies good work and the people you help so we can share with other "Hunger Fighters". Highlighting what others do and hearing their stories energizes and educates all of us.

Our largest fundraiser of the year, Hunger Awareness Day is 2 weeks away! Remember to save the date for Friday, June 1st. Together we can educate the public about hunger in our community and raise much need funds for the Food Bank Coalition. 

Food Safety 

 Food Safety 

Did you know that food borne illnesses tend to increase during the summer months? One reason is that bacteria tends to multiply faster when it's warm. Another reason is that people are cooking outside more, away from the refrigerators, thermometers, and washing facilities of a kitchen. Always remember to put safety first!
