More than a dozen volunteers from Bank of Marin helped out at the Marin Food Bank in Novato recently, packing food that that will make the holiday season a joyous occasion for more than 2,400 local families.
The group packed more than 41 cases of rice and re-packed 2,000 pounds of bread to be served at St. Vincent’s and local senior center brown bag programs.
The Marin Food Bank, based in Bel Marin Keys, supports more than 50,000 families. Combined with its sister organization, San Francisco Food Bank, the two entities serve more than 200,000 families across San Francisco and Marin.
In addition to volunteer support, Bank of Marin contributed $10,000 in 2012 in honor of the Food Bank’s 25th anniversary.
