Sutter Health - March 2017

Each month at 13 different locations, a Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) truck filled with fresh fruits and vegetables rolls up to distribute its goods for free to clients. SFBFS’ Produce For All program works to make healthy food accessible to families in need in the Sacramento region. Through the generosity of Sutter Health, SFBFS recently acquired a brandnew produce truck to help make distributions as welcoming and efficient as possible.

“We feel very fortunate to have the support of Sutter Health. This new produce truck allows us to get in and serve the clients in a visible way,” says Karen Strach, SFBFS’ Food Access Programs Manager. “Being able to serve the food out of this truck is about creating a distribution that’s dignified for our clients. Creating a caring environment really helps them feel comfortable asking for help.”
