  • Submitted
The California Fire Foundation and Sysco Corporation have donated $5,000 to Food for People as a relief effort to help Humboldt County communities impacted by COVID-19.

“As California firefighters are on the front lines of wildfires and other natural disasters, so too are the many organizations supporting families and communities through the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Rick Martinez, Executive Director of the California Fire Foundation. “Our foundation has already supported communities heavily impacted by disaster, and thanks to the support from Sysco, we are proud to continue that commitment and aid the Food for People Food Bank in their ongoing efforts to help their communities.”

Food for People has been conducting drive-thru food bank distributions since the shelter in place order began in March. 

“So many are suffering in our community due to this unprecedented crisis and we have seen the need for our service increase dramatically,” said Anne Holcomb, Executive Director of the Food for People Food Bank in Humboldt County. “We understand the long-term consequences of hunger and poor nutrition and thanks to the generous aid from California Fire Foundation and Sysco, we can continue our commitment to creating a stronger and healthier Humboldt County.”
