generosity-heartTo help ease hunger for our neighbors during the holiday season, Sutter Health has donated $50,000 to three East Bay food banks:

Alameda County Food Bank
Food Bank of Contra Costa
Food Pantry of Davis Street Family Resource Center
This year, Sutter Health donated a quarter-million-dollar-plus to 27 food banks across Northern California, Oregon and Hawaii. The donation enables local food banks to serve nutritious meals to those in need this holiday season.

“Our care teams play a special part in creating healthier communities,” says CEO Pat Fry. “Partnering with local food banks is another way we give back and help families stay well-nourished.”

In the past seven years, Sutter Health’s donations to community food banks total more than $1.6 million. On average, every dollar donated to food banks translates to more than four meals served.
