Six-year tally exceeds $1.4 million, aiding countless individuals and families

Sutter Health announced today a quarter-million-dollar-plus donation to 29 food banks across Northern California and Hawaii. The donation by the not-for-profit health system enables local food banks to serve more than 1 million nutritious meals to those in need this winter.

“A nutritious diet plays an important role in improving overall health and wellness and can even help protect against diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer,” said Pat Fry, president and CEO of Sutter Health. “We’re partnering with our food bank neighbors to help families stay healthy—and well nourished.”

On average, every dollar donated to food banks translates to more than four meals served. Over the past six years, our donations to community food banks total more than $1.4 million, which benefits countless individuals and families.

Fry added, “I’m honored to make this donation on behalf of our employees, doctors and volunteers—our compassionate Sutter Health team—whose hard work allows us to be a great neighbor to families in need.”

Sutter’s Commitment as a Great Neighbor

As a not-for-profit organization, Sutter Health believes in giving back. In addition to ongoing community commitments, last year, Sutter Health’s investment in care and services for the poor and underserved and benefits for the broader community amounted to $901 million.
