|About the Organization||
Started over 40 years ago, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano is leading the fight to end hunger, in partnership with our community and in service of our neighbors in need. An alarming 1 in 8 people within Contra Costa and Solano counties turn to the Food Bank for emergency and supplemental food. The Food Bank has developed programs that address the size of this need as well as nutritional needs of the people we serve. From program specialists to fundraisers, nutritionists to warehouse workers, the Food Bank’s 70+ staff members and our Board of Directors are a diverse and dedicated group. We run an efficient organization; 96 cents of every dollar donated goes towards food distribution and we earned our seventh consecutive 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator. We rely on volunteers, who last year donated 96,232 hours of time – the equivalent of 46 full-time employees! The Food Bank embraces diversity through a supportive, creative, and inclusive work environment where each employee has the opportunity for personal and professional development. We look for candidates who care deeply about our mission and values. For more information, please visit: www.foodbankccs.org
