Introducing Round-Up for Madera County Food Bank
It was a blissful Saturday morning at the Madera Speedway for the Second Wind 5K Marathon, benefitting Madera County Food Bank and Madera Rescue Mission.
The most exciting, fast-paced 5K on the planet takes place at Madera Speedway just off I-5 in Madera County!
Madera County Food Bank works hard to build partnerships, and we’re proud to have CalViva Health as one of our Community Partners.
We would like to issue a heartfelt thank you to everyone for participating in this year’s Food Champions Fundraiser
Though Michelle Ruiz keeps herself busy as the Madera County Food Bank Operations Manager, she’s proud of her work. Her job is no easy task, but she comes in every day knowing that she’s working to bring food and resources to those that need it the most in Madera County.
Madera County Food Bank is here for those who need assistance, especially when they go through a rough patch and need that extra help until they can get back on their feet.
From our Community and Emergency Food Assistance Program to our Senior Nutrition and Produce Program, we rely heavily on our staff to help make our food boxes and deliver those boxes to food pantries across Madera. One of those helping to serve the people of Madera is Caleb Pursell.
The COVID-19 pandemic changed many people’s lives. Jobs were lost. Financial burdens increased. Even the simple act of buying everyday essentials and groceries became difficult. Though the pandemic is starting to turn around, many families and individuals find themselves still struggling to put food on the table.
Mike Martinez never thought he would need assistance when he came to us at Madera County Food Bank. But Mike is not alone.
