I’m Rachel, the Visual Communications Coordinator at the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. In support of the people we serve, I am taking the Hunger/CalFresh Challenge along with other staff and Food Bank supporters from June 11-15, 2012.

Over the next two weeks I will try to give some insight to the reasons why people might need a little help to stretch their food dollars, debunk a myth or two and share why I believe it’s all of our responsibility to help others while boosting the California economy. Yes, all that and more on a CalFresh budget!
