Founded in 2001 through a partnership with SMUD and United Way, Network Café brings organizations closer together to improve community resources and services for people in need. Every month, over 70 representatives from local human-services organizations meet for a complimentary lunch to share ideas and collaborate on issues and services that impact people in crisis. Thanks to the ongoing support from SMUD, and participating agencies, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services 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 come share our vision of better assisting those in need and participate in this monthly event.
