Hello members. We hope you are enjoying the Spring season. In February, members met at a new venue, Other Brother Beer on Broadway Avenue in Seaside. In March, members joined an exclusive tour of Food Bank for Monterey County, a new facility that is still expanding to provide even more services to the community.

 

Our latest happenings:

  • March 21, 2024: Monthly chapter member meeting was held at Food Bank for Monterey County at 353 W. Rossi Street, Salinas, CA 93901. Executive Director Melissa Kendrick provided a tour of the facility which included a large warehouse and cold storage; community meeting room with a kitchen; executive meeting room, office spaces, and a nursery room for employees; and a farm out back. We were shown a fleet of delivery trucks, a “fresh produce market” truck, and a food truck that feed the community free at variety of locations every day. We were offered healthy and culturally appropriate chicken posole soup which was delicious. This Food Bank provides unique services such as diapers for moms and breast cancer patient food assistance. The organization provides ample opportunities for volunteering for individuals and groups. They are presently working to realize an outdoor kitchen and meeting space that would connect the garden to the dining experience, a place for learning about food and health, and for community interaction. https://foodbankformontereycounty.org/
