Community FoodBank CEO Maria Thomas gladly accepts a check from Chris Tanzi as Greg Gilliam (right) enjoys the moment. The Hollister Lucky Supermarket’s holiday campaign to feed the community was an overwhelming success, thanks largely to Tanzi’s zeal. The check to Community FoodBank brings more than $4,800 to Community FoodBank’s daily effort to end hunger in San Benito County. It’s a special cause for Tanzi, who each year has tried to top previous efforts. According to Lucky manager Gilliam, Tanzi may singlehandedly been responsible for raising $4,000 in the campaign. Tanzi, Gilliam and Lucky Stores get it: the best communities are those where we work together toward solutions — communities like ours!
Community Food Bank’s mission is to provide food, nutritional education and advocacy for our neighbors in need within San Benito County.
