Foodbank invests $100K


Santa Barbara County Foodbank Executive Director Erik Talkin and the Foodbank’s Board of Directors have decided to invest an additional $100,000 in emergency and supplemental food sources and opportunities to help those in need this winter.  The foodbank is asking the community to assist in this effort by continuing to deepen their financial support of the organization.

The funds will be used to make a major contribution to the Emergency Food Purchase Plan, which will allow the foodbank to buy food for those in need and feed families not only through the holiday period, but also in the first months of the new year, Talkin said in a release.
