Network Café

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) has a 40-plus year history of feeding people literally and figuratively. Network Café began in 2001, through a partnership with SMUD and United Way, to connect community resources and services to people in need. Every month, over 70 representatives from local human-services organizations meet for a complimentary lunch to collaborate on issues and solutions to serve our community. Thanks to the ongoing support from SMUD, and participating agencies, SFBFS is able to provide an opportunity for organizations to exchange information in a relaxed environment with good food, meaningful interaction and great networking. Not-for-profit agencies are welcome to join our efforts, supporting neighbors as they navigate the path to prosperity.

Upcoming Presentations:

October: CA Dept. of Business Oversight and The Family Support Initiative

After 17 years of community connections, lunches and presentations, SFBFS has decided to sunset hosting Network Café meetings beginning in 2020 to focus on internal programming and services. October will be the last Network Café held at SFBFS.

If your agency is interested in learning more about how to become the host site, including the financial support available, please connect with Genevieve Levy and Leslie Adorno De Chacing of SMUD as soon as possible. More information will be provided at the October Network Café, we hope to see you then!
