Donation from Christ Fellowship church

June Hockenberry presents food bank CEO Maria Thomas with a donation of $350.

The recent partial federal government closure brought a steady trickle of federal employees to Community FoodBank. As they struggled to make ends meet, San Benito County stepped up.

June Hockenberry called to ask if there was anything she could do, and the upshot is that she passed the hat at her Christ Fellowship prayer group, collecting $350 for food bank operations. With no assurance of another government shutdown in mid-February, Community FoodBank is preparing to meet the need should it arise.

It’s easy to sign up for a weekly supply of groceries. Simply stop by Community FoodBank Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and in a minute or so, you can be registered.

Community Food Bank’s mission is to provide food, nutritional education and advocacy for our neighbors in need within San Benito County.
