As part of our sales team meeting this summer, SPI Group spent time working at our local food bank. We were happy to help Alameda County Community Food Bank in their mission to alleviate hunger by providing nutritious food and nutrition education to people in need, educating the public, and promoting public policies that address hunger and its root causes.
With high unemployment rates in the state, and rising food costs, the food bank is helping more people than ever. Recent numbers indicate that 1 in 6 people take help from the foodbank. The food bank feeds about 49,000 people in Alameda County a week.
Working with the other volunteers was the fun part of our day, as we bagged produce along side students from a middle school and other volunteers.
We were impressed with the tour of the facility, very modern – and their impressive volunteer leaders who guided us in a very orderly fashion!
SPI is proud to support the community we live and work in!
