This month the San Diego Food Bank had the honor of being recognized as Nonprofit of the Year for California’s 77th Assembly District. During the celebration of California Nonprofits Day at the State Assembly, Assemblymember Brian Maienschein presented San Diego Food Bank President and CEO, James A. Floros, with this prestigious award on the floor of the State Assembly.
The San Diego Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County in conjunction with our North County Food Bank chapter based in San Marcos. In total, the Food Bank distributed over 30 million pounds of food last year, and we serve an average of 350,000 people every month.
Commenting on the award, Assemblymember Brian Maienschein said,
“The San Diego Food Bank has served an important role in our community through the years, and I truly appreciate their work providing food and other resources to those who are in need in the San Diego region.”
The work of the Food Bank would not be possible without the generosity of donors, our team of dedicated volunteers and over 500 nonprofit distribution partners. Food Bank CEO, James Floros, said,
“On behalf of the San Diego Food Bank’s board of directors, staff, supporters, and family of volunteers, we are truly honored to receive the 77th District Nonprofit of the Year Award for our work in the community. It takes a community to feed a community, and this award honors the wonderful people who make our mission possible. We thank Assemblymember Brian Maienschein and the California Assembly for recognizing the Food Bank’s vital mission in the community.”
Special thanks to Assemblymember Brian Maienschein, his dedicated staff and the constituents of District 77 for bestowing this outstanding award on behalf of the Food Bank’s vital mission in the community.
