Join us at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona for an inside peek at how this award-winning organization distributes emergency food from many sources to nearly 200,000 people each year.
Food coming from government programs, food drives, grocery store donations and rescued produce programs makes up a complex web of sources that supply the Community Food Bank. Every day the challenge of managing this food supply makes both high-tech and low-tech methods essential. Chief Operations Officer, Dana Yost, and Director of Warehouse Operations, Jacob Coldsmith, will speak to the challenges of delivering perishable and non-perishable food in this complex environment.
