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.
